childhood unplugged: april

spring break: bringing shrieks of joy…or pain across the nation.  i love my kids.  i really really do.  and i like the idea of spring break.  the reality of spring break, though, can be less than ideal, especially with young kids.  the ideal: let them stay up late for popcorn and a movie as a treat so that they will sleep in the next morning.  the reality: they stay up late and whine when they have to go to bed, even when it’s an hour past their regular bedtime.  the next morning they are up even earlier than usual, are grumpy, fight with each other nonstop and shoot you death glares when you suggest an afternoon “quiet time”.

so even though we didn’t have big plans to go away this year, we threw together a last minute one night “staycation”.  i googled hotels within a 2 hour drive that had a waterslide.  squamish, here.we.come.

    What an awesome adventure! And yes, I will never understand HOW is it possible to wake up earlier after staying up late???

  5. Sharalee! I am with you sista on the spring break issues! My son does the same thing. Stays up late and then gets up earlier! What’s up with that? We also did a bunch of staycation stuff. Keep them busy, busy, busy!
