A couple of weeks ago, I had an expected few days away from the kids. It wasn’t unexpected because I didn’t know about it, more like I forgot. So when my sister and brother-brother-in-law text me letting me know what time they were picking them up, that’s when I remembered.
At first, I was stoked. Hubs was in Hawaii prepping for his upcoming annual training and frankly, I could use the break. Enter day 2 without the kiddos and I was bored out of my mind.
I learned a valuable lesson. I don’t need as much of a “break” from my kiddos as the day to day leads me to believe. We love getting creative together. I love playing games with them. I love doing activities with them like these.

Don’t Forget to Pin It!
I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
