I made a mistake.
I asked my son what he wanted to do this summer. I suggested camps, volunteer work, baseball, soccer and all sorts of things.
But all my son wants to do is play hockey.
And where I live there is a lot of hockey available to be played in the summer months.
Which means that now that it is sunny and warm out I am spending my time freezing in cold, smelly dark hockey rinks.
This is sort of how I spend much of the winter months too.
I really have to learn to say 'No' better.
