School Holiday Mothering

School holidays require a different kind of juggling in our home. It's always a challenge keeping the MissyMoos entertained, while also trying to give them a rest, all while arranging who will look after them on our common work days. And it seems like one set of holidays have only just finished when we're already having to think about arrangements for the next set.

Don't get me wrong. I love school holidays. I love that the MissyMoos can just have down time without being rushed around so much. Even when I still work my normal days, it feels like I have more time with them simply because we're all a bit more relaxed. And I love not having to pack lunch boxes every morning.

A desperate attempt to make the contents of a lunch box more interesting. Tell me I'm not the only one who's done this!

Over the past couple of holidays, the MissyMoos have had a one night sleepover at their Nonna and Par's house. It gives them a change of scene, they get spoiled by their grandparents and it gives Hubby and I a bit of quiet (oh, so much quiet...). Even though we're working our normal days/times when this happens, it feels like we have so much more time because we're not getting kids ready in the morning, or doing the bath/bed routine at night. We didn't know how good we had it back when we used to trot off to work with only ourselves to look after.

Still, I missed the MissyMoos. And even without children in the house, I still couldn't quite stop the mothering...

What? She was cold...
