Weekend! When the workin’ days are through…

Posted on

I need your help! Here’s the scenario:

OK, CareerMom is gone till Sunday afternoon.

It’s gonna rain most of the weekend

Which means all my “outdoor exercise” activities are shot.

I’m gonna need to bleed off some energy from both the boys and myself.

    What about building “table tents” ? Place chairs in two rows and cover with sheets or simply drape a table with blankets to form tents. Outfit them with “lanterns”, pillows, flashlights, etc. and have an indoor camping event replete with picnic food and drink!
    Tell stories, and have S’mores over the fire in the fireplace!


    take ’em to Grandma H.s’ house, leave them there for a couple of hours and go have a brewski and catch a flick with a friend ?

    In this month’s copy of Atlanta Parent magazine, right in the front cover is a coupon for Monkey Joe’s. $3 off. That’s our plan, I think. Also, if you’re desperate, the Foam Factory is open on Saturdays in Marietta.

    RE: Crap…don’t have that copy. Considering the “Play Room” if it’s not booked w/parties.

    RE: RE: OK, stupid playroom became so popular that they are now closed from noon till closing on the weekends for birthdays. I mean, who has their kids up and ready to wear out before lunchtime? Ugh! What a waste! Did Monkey Joes, but the problem is the age diff. MLI wants to do the big boy stuff, but MLE is too little to even though he tries. But all he gets is pushed around and yelled at by the other kids for being too slow. But God Bless ’em, MLI played on the “Under 3” jumpy things with MLE for nearly an hour without complaint. He’s a good brother.

    We have a mini trampoline in our house, the kind that has a handle for balance. I think the actual name is “Urban Rebounder.” They’re great for exercise and could also be a hit with little boys. Costs about $100. Figure any real activity can come close to half of that and these things last forever.

      Boys got one for Christmas, but like all toys, after a while, they stop using it. Time to put it away for a while. As an option, I removed all the couch pillows and they tumbled for a while.

    P.S. I’m really glad you decided not to disappear from the blogosphere.

    Scavenger Hunts. You make them run around the house looking for things while you sit in the recliner with your beer and magazine until they come back. Then make them hunt for something else. You could probably finish a whole magazine before they catch on.
