Guest Napper #79 – Scintillating Spring Break

I know this isn’t true for everyone, but today is the first day of what promises to be a very loooooong Spring Break for me.

Mind you, there was a time when Spring Break meant flirting with cute guys and cruising in borrowed convertibles. I wore a few outfits that scandalized my mother. I may have even taken a few naps…after being up until late at night annoying the regular residents of Palm Springs along with my thousands of spring breaking pals. I think we broke their spring, for sure. Anyhoo…

This picture from Dainelle, however, shows more accurately what I have to look forward to this week. I would say “let’s take the kids to an art museum” but Devon isn’t finding art very stimulating. Her drawing does appear to be soothing, however.

Sometimes art is boring.

I have to say that if Devon (a girl) is finding this coloring boring, you can bet the boys will last about 60 seconds at this activity, after which they will go out into the backyard and spend the next hour covering themselves in potting soil.

I so look forward to cleaning that up.

Devon looks like the coloring wore her out, though.

I'm just closing my eyes for a second, Mom.

Yep. I am looking forward to this week. Mmmhhhmmmm.

Yes, indeedy.

  1. Our Spring Break is next week. I never know what to do with the kiddos on vacation weeks. I don’t want to pay to go somewhere “fun” that’s mobbed with screaming kids and grumpy parents. Why bother when I can have that right here at home for free? Maybe if I make a rum and coke it’ll feel like Spring Break in Key West?

    1. I know – I thought and am thinking all of these things. We just colored eggs, which at least distracted them for an hour. But now it’s back to the same old same old. Squabbling, begging for TV…driving me insane. Might. Go. Insane.
