My stampin days are limited this week because next week all four of my kiddos are off from school for Spring break.
I can fill their days with videos, movies, and syndicated Malcolm in the Middle episodes and have lots of time to myself in the basement or I can spend their time off with them and take them on day trips to fabulous places (I...umm...just have to think of some first....) and make some much needed memories while I can. Before they are too old and don't want to be with me but rather go to exotic places with friends instead.
I'm choosing to spend time with them.
The bad part about Spring break is that their dad, the Accountant, is never around because of Tax Season. So, anything I do with the kids, it is as a single parent. Which is hard. Incredibly hard. I'm looking for some last minute really cheap tickets to somewhere warmer than Michigan. I'm not sure that I can handle four kids on a vacation like that though. But, they've never flown before and would love it. Maybe a day trip to Florida? We don't even have to spend the night. Just a quick flight down and back. The airplane will be the adventure. And then maybe next year, we could actually leave the airport and go to a restaurant for lunch or something. By the time I'm brave enough to spend the night out of town with four kids, they might all be teenagers!
