Winter Break Crazies
Wed, 12-21-2005 - 9:11pm

My kids have been on winter break for five days. I have fourteen more to go! I think I am losing my mind. Not to mention it is raining buckets here so outside play has been minimal. We have done crafts, watched movies, baked cookies.....still they are BORED. I just want to get a few things done around the house without hearing "MOOOOOOOMMY" for five minutes.

What are you doing to keep your kids busy?

Lol, I have to work, since dh is layed off he gets to hear it. My rule has always been entertain yourself or I will find chores for you. After ds scrubs the toilets, he doens't come to me with the whine anymore.
