Twas the night before family home holiday, when all though the house, nothing stirred not even a mouse (Miss S). Wonder-wife and I were watching a recording on T.V. about families slowing down. As I was busy making our “to do” list, (a “How to cram as much stuff into one day” if I may). Whatever you call it, the irony was not lost on me, doing a list especially while watching a show about slowing down. I mean I am a little bit more “We’ll just see where the days take us.” attitude, wonder-wife is a bit more of a planner. The week was filled faster then I could say “What are we going to do on his day?” This was my family home holiday: prep time.
I couldn’t type it as fast as the the list of things was mentioned, but not only had we filled every morning and afternoon we over filled it! I needed to talk to wonder-wife about what we are going to leave out. Obviously we were going to be very busy over the next week, even taking a lot of things off our list. What is the most important with a family holiday then doing the things that want to do, right?
The boys wanted to:
Go to a zoo
Visit the beach
Get to a farm
Play in the park
Wonder-wife and I wanted:
A fancy lunch
A sleep in
Some time in the garden
Visit the gallery
Visit the CBD
A day trip in the car somewhere
As its a family home holiday the kids can still do the fun day-to-day activities, music and swimming but no day care for them and no work for me.
So how do you choose what your kids will like better. A trip to the zoo or to the aquarium or to a petting farm?
I think you kind of get the picture here. Anyway this is the start of my family home holiday week.
Till next time.
