One thinks initially that when the younger one is in school things will be easier-my thought has always been to go back to woh ft once ds is in school (and I am done with my schooling). But I was thinking about it last night, thinking about our schedules.
Right now, dd has piano once a week at 5p. At the end of the month, she'll start track and field, which means practice till 430 every day, meets on the weekends. Then at the end of April she wants to play softball-I have no idea of the schedule yet, but I'm guessing practices at least 2x a week plus one game a week.
Ds is in swimming lessons 2 nights a week. Goes to preschool 4 days a week (2.5 hrs). In April he will start T ball-again I have no idea of the schedule but I'm guessing it will be another couple evenings a week at least!
I know many parents have said that as kids get older, it actually gets harder rather than easier-and I am really starting to find this out!! I honestly dont know that I will EVER woh ft again-I just dont see how it will work for us.
So woh ft parents, how do you juggle the sports schedules and such? I know I've asked about child care in other threads , but when you throw baseball practice into the mix, how does that work for you? We are even pretty strict about NOT allowing our kids to do too many activities, but even with each of them just doing one or two, it seems like its going to be VERY hectic. Do you ever have to tell your kid they cannot do a certain activity because it doesnt work well as far as work schedules and such? Do you limit activities? Does the sitter or dc provider take the kids to activities???
