This week my husband is on Spring Break and so begins a week of divide and conquer parenting, one of my very favorite things. He had a bunch of un-fun errands to run today, so he took Bub (no spring break for him!) to school while I get to hang out with my best girl and buy last minute things for everyone Easter baskets, (including my husband as we still get baskets for each other.)
I’ve got several things to do with just Bub, including a Chuck E. Cheese birthday party and an Easter egg dying playdate, both of which are considerably harder to manage with the little brunette tornado in tow.
AND, as if I planned it that way, the kids have their dentist appointments on Friday so we can all go together and spend some quality time listening to the hygienists tell Bub that he’s frightening all of the other patients, so if he could just take his freak out down a notch, everyone would appreciate it.
We’ve also made a list of fun things to get done, like starting a little container garden (I’m mostly excited about the cute garden stakes I found,) and maybe a little day trip later in the week. You know, because nothing will be crowded while half of the world is on Spring Break. (I’m lobbying for a trip to the corner park, because crowds make me twitchy.)
Of course we have Easter this weekend, which means lots of spoiling from the grandparents, and Easter egg hunts galore.
What’s on your agenda for the week?
