>Andy has been back in school for a week and a half and we are starting to get back in the groove. It’s hard sometimes to be home all day with kids and housework that never seems to get done. But that’s my life. I’m trying to get into some habits that make it easier but they are coming slow. I try and add one thing every week that makes the routine a little less mundane and keeps the TV off just a little longer.
That’s my real battle. I crave the sound of grown-ups talking and I watch TV on http://www.hulu.com or Netflix or something just to make my life a little less “baby.” But there is nothing that I really want the girls to see so I end up with the computer on my lap and the headphones in and then… I’m totally cut off from them. They are totally on their own for entertainment and learning. I try and sit down and read to them every day. I try and go over colors and letters and numbers and play at least a little but I get so tired of it all so fast. I feel like I’m the one with the short attention span. I hate to admit it but I’m really not that great at the stay at home mom thing.
So, I will continue to try and add a few things to the routine that keep the TV off and the kids more entertained and maybe I will be a better mom.
What do you do every day that makes your routine better and keeps you sane?
