Sssshhhhh! Sssshhhhhh! Do you hear that?
That my friends, is the sound of SILENCE!
I survived week #1 of summer by getting copious amounts of library books for the boys! When we got back from the library earlier this week, I think they sat silently on the couch like that for at least 30 minutes. And in mom time, that’s like 3 hours. I’m not too sure about the conversion, but that seems about right.
So my second strategy for surviving summer is:
BOOKS! GLOOOORIOUS BOOKS!
- There’s really no need for a list here. I just like making them.
- Lots of books (I think we checked out 23 last time)!
- Go to the library often! Kids looooove new books!
- I’ll stop making lists now.
In the past I’ve sworn off of the library (for short amounts of time) because I would spend hours trying to locate that one last book that somehow got shoved into another book and then reshelved. Or stuck between the bedframe and the mattress. Gaaarrrr!
However! I’m trying to be better about keeping the kids’ library books in the library bag. Now there’s a concept! I’ve also been trying to get the boys into the habit of returning the book to the bag when they’re done with it. If this plan succeeds I might get a few hours of my life back. Okay, probably not, but I might save on gray hairs. I’ll take what I can get.
