I’ve gone and done it again.
I’ve signed up my kids for too many activities. I hate myself for this.
I have this great idea that my trio need to do two activities each. I want them each to do a physical activity and an artistic one. That would make six activities in total, more then enough for me to drive around to.
There is a little problem with this though. I also want my kids to learn to skate, to read music and to swim. I don’t want them to just swim passably however, I want them to know life saving skills too. I want them to know how to jump in and save someone should they fall into our pool and bang their head. Why? Probably because I figure the one most likely to do that would be me. I have a few problems with balancing while wearing flip-flops.
So I went and got my kids all registered in these things and then my trio went and brought up their own ideas about what they want to do. Since I feel like I should at least consider their wishes, lo and behold a few more things got crowded into our schedule.
Then two well meaning teachers came along and pointed out that my children have a talent for something and yep, I went and added something else to the schedule. Of course, there’s also homework and friend time to consider too.
I am over booked. Worse then that, I am not giving my kids enough time to just sit and chill.
Ah well, it’s not too late to say no. I just hope the cancellation fees don’t kill me.
