i am a sahm of two young kids who dont attend kinder or school yet. so we dont have mornings were we need to be somwhere at a certain time! our days are chilled and nothing is ever really plannd. we go with the flow.
So school holidays to us means nothing but ANNOYING!! even though my dh was home for the past 2 weeks, i am so GLAD he is back at work.
Dh doesnt know how to relax and needed to do something every day. we usually dont go out every day. the kids were exhausted and overtired and stopped sleeping their usual naps in the day.
everywhere was busy. it was a nightmare to park the car.
all our usual toddler time activities we would go to were taken over by older kids and crafy activities - too advanced for my 2.5yr old.
dh had dd wrappd around his little finger. he would go to her at every demand, protest, scream. Now dh isnt around, she is super clingy and demanding towards me.
By choice, dh would get upto the kids of a morning and get their breakfast while i layed in for a bit. HE decicided things were not working as i was doing them, so changed our entire morning routine. Then wonders why the kids were so grumpy and awful of a morning????? i would lay in bed and listen to them screaming and dh getting stressed out. grrr.
Its now my job to get things back to normal.
we couldnt do much these holidays as were are tight for money atm and i was fine with chilling at home, doing stuff around the house, pj days, ect. But dh had other plans. holidays have ended and i am sooooo exhausted and so are the kids.
i hate school holidays.
