With school being out my daughter has plans to go anywhere and everywhere. She does not want to sit home all day relaxing and playing. She wants to go to the zoo, the museum, dance camp, gymnastics camp, and art camp. Basically you name it she wants to go! To me her summer plans sound utterly exhausting and hot. I hate running around during the summer because it’s so hot and humid all I want to do is stay inside all day long and bask in my air conditioning. That’s all I want to do, I don’t want to do any of this running around from place to place where I know I will be hot, sweaty and miserable. Does that sound like fun to you? I remember when I was a kid I hated being busy during the summer, I just wanted to stay where it was cool. My kid however wants to be on the go all summer long. When I asked her why she wants to go everywhere when she knows it’s going to be very hot and miserable her sole answer is that going places is fun. I tried very hard to convince her that we can have fun at home while we stay cool and enjoy the air condition but she wouldn’t hear of it. I will be doing my research on things we can do inside where there is air conditioning but so she can still feel like she can be a busy bee. The things we do for our kids, like sacrificing our need of being cool just so they can have fun.
