I’m laying in bed tonight, realizing that after 3 PM this afternoon, the boys will be home all day, everyday, for the rest of the summer. Truth be told, I’d much rather have the boys home, than at school. Some might call me a masochist, but I just love having the boys around.
Having said that, I want to be very clear. I have no idea what we’re going to do this summer, and I know that my kids will be driving me crazy inside their first week home. I have no illusions about that.
With Lizze in intensive outpatient therapy (DBT classes) for the entire summer, the boys and I will have quite a bit of guy time on our hands. We haven’t had this much guy time since Lizze and I were separated.
One of the thing that everyone has agreed to do this summer was exercise.
The way we are going to accomplish this is to continue getting up early each morning and either walking the track or going hiking. I’m totally cool with this, but foresee a great many challenges with Emmett. He still won’t wear socks and since he’s only able to wear crocs, that limits the hiking.
The problem will be that every thirty seconds, he’s going to have to stop, take his crocs off and shaking them out.
