So I have totally taken the low road. I still have not mentioned to my son that we missed his computer animation course yesterday. I figure if he can't even remember that he was supposed to go, he doesn't need me to remind him that I suck.
None of the kids even mentioned that we missed taekwondo last night either. I was napping when it was time to leave and no one came to ask to go, so....
Honestly, I think we are all just burnt out. We are taking the summer off of taekwondo and everything else. I can't wait til this week is over, because then we are done all of our commitments. Well there is youth group for the eldest and their volunteer work, but I am done.
My hubby mentioned that maybe we should completely simplify this year. No hockey or taekwondo this winter. I am ecstatic! Last winter I begged my husband to have the boys choose one or the other. Taekwondo is 3 to 4 nights a week and hockey is 2 to 3 ice times at least per child per week. I knew it was going to be crazy trying to keep up with all of that. Especially because my husband's work often takes him away from home in the fall, and his hours are usually insane. So that means me running around like a crazy person taking them to stuff.
So I am all for simplifying our life. With 4 kids wanting to do activities, and a brand new baby, life could easily get out of hand. Brent suggested that maybe we just get ski passes and he and the boys can go skiing on a regular basis. I think that would be amazing. Of course I was thinking to myself that maybe each kid could do something that is only one day a week. You know, cuz I am crazy like that. My hubby gives me an out and I am still looking for ways to make my life nutty.
But Girly is begging to take dance. begging. And I think the boys should keep their skating skills up...
We will see. I am not going to commit myself to anything right now. I am going to enjoy my summer off and I guess we will see what happens.
