Welcome, welcome to week two of summer vacation 2019. We are six school free days in, four of which I have been home alone with my two dementors & without tempting fate, saying Beetlejuice 3 times or spilling salt & not chucking some over my shoulder to appease the salty Gods, it’s all been ok so far.
I haven’t felt that oh so familiar feeling of overwhelming despair, those two little voices & a to do list haven’t combined like the Worlds worst juggler is inside my head & dropping balls all over my thought process, nor have I given up refereeing the madness & sat staring at the paint work questioning my life choices & the wife’s tastes in colour schemes!
Plenty of time for all that in month 2!
My tactical approach of keeping them fed, watered and you tubed has so far kept me in normal human mode. In fact this Summer has shown a noted change as Dementor 1 now enjoys long lazy lie ins watching tv in bed, while Dementor 2 has reached the age where he can entertain himself in the morning with his toys or his switch!
You Tube, TV binging & gaming consoles! Some would tut loudly & give disapproving stares, what a bad Daddy!
Don’t worry, I see those people, I caught those stares & I carefully parcel them back up and fastball their ass out of the park, Strike 1
Parenting is hard, in fact parenting sucks. If TV & technology can help me keep a happy household and a happy Daddy over the looooong summer holidays then plug it in & crank up the volume!
I’m not letting them vegetate all Summer, we have trips planned, activities in the pipeline, so far I have suggested building a den in the garden or getting a tent & camping out!
But, my kids, the kids of 2019 don’t seem interested, but so far they sure look happy
