Don't take this the wrong way but I am in a total panic about how in the heck we are going to get through the next three long months.
I am happy for Carson that he is out of preschool. He was totally bored with it the past few months anyway. I am happy to be home with my kids (my first ever summer of not working). I am happy that we can play outside and make memories. Truth be told, I love being with my kids!
By 8:00 this morning they were begging to go outside. They are acting bored already and I have to tell you, that makes me panic. Carson must have asked me 15 times if he could go to Kindergarten today. (Try explaning the concept of time to a kid on the spectrum. Especially when what they want to do is three months away.)
I do not have it in me to be the parent that lets my kids wander the sub unsupervised. Lord knows, that Carson is not okay to be left alone. Fin is only two so... what does that mean.....
It meas whatever they do, I do too.
That is okay most of the time. I am use to spending my days from 12-5 or so painting, playing, making forts, etc. I am lucky that my husband is pretty low maintenance in the housework department (just don't ask him to do any, and he will not care what you do in return).
It's just these four little extra hours that might take me over the edge. At some point I have to do laundry, clean the house, eat bonn bonns and watch TV (ha ha).
Yes, we do have lots of activities planned for Carson this summer. Some days will be easier to fill than others. He will have camp and of course the usual OT, PT, Speech. What a fun summer for a five year old!!!!
Yes, we do have Ms. Nicole and she is a HUGE help. However, it is not her job to watch Fin. (although she is VERY helpful with him too)
So, any suggestions on how to make this work? I am sure I can't be the only mom out there that is beginning to think year round school is a great idea.
