Do you have rules for the summer?
Aubrey doesn't have school today and i can already tell I'm going to go crazy this summer.. i need to set up some rules and FAST. We're usually some what busy on weekends so it's not a big issue during the school year.
-If you have younger kids, what are the rules during nap time? Only one friend over? No friends? Only play outside? Do I turn a movie on and call it down time or figure out a craft to do or something (w/ no friends)? My youngest is CRANKY if woken up before he is ready and where my m/s is SO bad I just can't deal with that if I don't have to.
-How many friends in general are allowed to be over at one time (we have lots of neighborhood kids)? We have a couple of neighbors where the kids have cousins that live with them and it seems like "extras" are always tagging along.
-If they ask for a snack, do you give them one? If it's a "play date" then that's one thing but I don't want to end up feeding half the neighborhood this summer.. kwim?
-If they suddenly have to go home, do you ask them to hurry and pick up before leaving?
-If friends are playing in the yard and need a drink or have to use the bathroom, do you just send them home?
Anything else? Thanks.. I really appreciate it.
