My advice is not to bother! Ha but then I have been in the thick of the Easter holidays and it’s not easy juggling them and the blog, to be honest I have not been very productive at all. Come the evening when they finally go to bed, I don’t have the energy to bother, so my to do list is growing at an alarming rate!!!
It’s hard, I thought their allocated screen time is a good time to boot up my ancient laptop and try and reply to emails, comment on some blogs, perhaps even if I am feeling VERY ambitious actually write a post, but its almost impossible to concentrate.
They don’t just play the computer game they are currently pretending to be baby versions of the characters so its gah gah voices, singing in chipmunk high pitched screeches and telling me every detail of their upgrades, battles and of course arguing over who gets to open the next chest or drive the vehicle. Seriously I feel like leaving the room and folding some washing… (Or perhaps rocking quietly in a corner for a bit!). I swear the dog learns from them as she is currently crying too, because now my laptop is on is the perfect time for her to keep bringing me her toy to throw!!! If I don’t do it quick enough its doggie tantrums here, my hubbie does not realise how nice it is to actually work in a proper work place, without distractions!
But I try and write regardless because lets be honest I love my blog, I like the chance to go to events we would not normally and it gives me the flexibility to be at home with the kids when I need too. I don’t have to worry about them missing out on something happening in the community, they can go to their friends on playdates or off on a day trip. So I am working through the chipmunk distractions and doing my best! SO if I am off my game a bit please make an exception hopefully normal service will resume from Monday!
Come that day though I will be pining for them and the house will sound TOO quiet. We will be off out soon, bike rides burning LOTS of energy or another long hike!
I wouldn't have it any other way really! I am so glad I don't have to work long hours at a supermarket every weekend anymore, I never feel like I am missing out on seeing them grow, I could just do with FIVE minutes peace to get organised!
