When the Kindergartener at work is home it is more work for me. He is alittle harder to keep entertained then the 3 yr old and the baby. Not to mention there is more cause for conflict between the Kindergartener and the 3 yr old when they are home together all day too. I have started planning things we can do and projects we can work on while I am there on the days I work.
The other conflict for this summer is what do do with Kid# 5 while I have to work. We have never had this problem before since in previous years I have had the summers off. I can always take her to work with me any day I need to but of course she doesn't really want to do that. She also can go to work with her Dad once in a while but not as an regular thing each week. I don't really like the idea of her being home all day long by herself. We will just have to play it by ear and hopefully get a rhythm going soon.
I am looking forward to the warm weather and not having such a strict schedule due to school. That will be nice. I also will have 2 days a week off to spend with Kid# 5 which is nice too.
For the first time in a long time I will also earn a pay check during the summer months. I am really looking forward to that!! Summer always seems to be an expensive time for us. Seems there are a lot of birthdays and activities we are invited to do that all involve spending money.
Ok well I have rambled on about summer enough now. Hope everyone is having a good week so far :) Really trying to get in the swing of blogging more.
