Breathe in for 3 and out for 6….am repeating this to myself at the moment. It is just one of those times where there is a lot going on and it is easy to get overwhelmed. I am generally wobbly physically, but can also get a bit wobbly emotionally!
In for 3…Out for 6…
It seems like it is such a busy time at the moment. Kids have school things on such as camp, remembering which day they need to take sports uniforms, what day who goes where for soccer training, and the constant annoyance of doing the school lunchboxes.
Then add on parent teacher interviews, and an early pickup for 2 of them (I forgot last time, so have definately remembered this time!). And not to mention an after school detention to remember and pick up a bit later than normal. Grrr.
What day was Max’s drum lesson, Ed’s guitar and piano lessons, and Arch’s violin lesson???
Of course I am doing none of the running around as I work full time, but I need to make sure that we have organised people to do it.
And to top it off, Richard goes to America on Thursday for a bit over two weeks….
So a word of warning. I will be late to work everyday for that 2 weeks so I can take the kids to school. Homework may not be done. I may buy wine in bulk. We may have takeaway on nights other than Friday.
So my mantra at the moment is…
Breathe…In for 3…Out for 6…
I hope the Autumn weather keeps on being beautiful like this, and you may find the boys and I having our takeaway dinners down on the beach!
