I think kids being bored on school holidays is pretty universal. Lol. I'm really looking forward to, but at the same time dreading, the next 2 weeks school holidays. My poor little man is an only child so I've tried to organise my working mum friends to send their kids over to play with him but have so far only managed a few days and with the weather we won't be going far.
What I would never expect is for DP to have him for 2 or more weeks school holidays if he didn't want to. I don't understand....why
DS' stepmum used to love having him so it was a win-win because they got time together and the pressure was off my side of the family re vacation care fees but if she resented it or didn't welcome him into her home he'd be better off with his little friends in vacation care.
