The first day of school holidays

Today is the officially the first day of school holidays for the kids. So…….

  • After a full day of activities with the kids
  • After hearing their constant non-stop appeals of “mummy, please play with us” (yunno, the kind that leaves you guilty if you don’t and busy if you do?)
  • After one whole day of breaking up fights
  • After taking them out to water the plants only to have a huge dead lizard drop in front of me when I opened the door (the man must have accidentally wedged poor lizzy on his way out to work this morning)
  • After discovering a host of huge flies hovering over some stray cat poo near the flower pots (Oh Kitty! Why can’t you catch the partying rats on my roof instead of leaving your smelly poo behind?)
  • After the kids danced around near the cat poo and large flies and watered the porch floor and themselves instead of the plants
  • After spending nearly an hour trying to fix the batteries on their trains for their train set and almost breaking the trains in the process (Can you tell that changing batteries is not included in my normal tasks? Its usually their dad’s.)
  • After one full day of shouting and nagging

I have decided that the school holidays is waayyyy too long. In my earlier post I had thought that it would be too short. Oh how wrong I was!

  1. hmmm there are a lot of children’s camps out there. perhaps u can explore n send them to these camps. most of it does not require any overnight. and its beneficial too..ie they learn social, science, education, computers…

    And miss all this fun? (plus have to pay for it!)

  2. Haha, this is so funny. And I am actually looking forward to having this mess! Yeah, I know, when I experienced it I am likely to also curse and swear that it is too long! Good luck!

    Haha. But its still nice to have them around. 🙂

  3. haha… counted from Saturday, 3 days had gone, I still feel it is short.

    I can’t make up my mind. When I want to do activities with them, its too short. When they drive me up the wall, its too long. Haha.

  4. our official first day of school hol is to go for std 1 orientation..*yawn*

    Fortunately, the std 1 orientation for my girl previously was only 2 days, ie over the weekend before school starts. Hehe. So not so *yawn*

  5. nay, at the end of the holidays, u will go back to ur 1st statement “too short”! We always have endless list of things to do with the kids, yet we spent most of the time yelling at them…haiz!!

    Yes, you are so right. 🙂

  6. hahaha….I hope it does get easier as the days go by and soon you will find that it is all gone!

    Maybe that is why initially you felt the hols are too short.

    Hope you get to enjoy your kids and yourself a bit more with Christmas around the corner! 🙂

    Haha. Yes, it gets easier and harder, easier and harder. lol. but thats part of the fun. 😉

  7. Oh the grand old time of School Holidays. honestly I can’t wait until my little guy is in school and I have this problem! I have these problems every day! LOL Seriously.. thanks for the tips.
