Scheduling time for fun

Being that summer just started, I am trying to make sure the kids have a spot each day to have fun with me. I've been trying to do more laundry at night, and the dishes at night, so I don't feel overwhelmed with housework during the day. I am very tired when it is time to go to bed, but it helps me to sleep soundly through the night.

The last few days, after Andy's nap, I stop what I'm doing and we get in the pool or play on the floor. I feel that I need to show Andy some fun each day, he is so easily frustrated. It seems to be helping him maintain a good mood. It is hard to set aside the time that is needed for everything to get done, meanwhile, keeping the kids happy too.

I feel happy when I honestly feel that we had a really good day, and both kids know how much I love them. Then add in the husband too, and that's a lot of moving and shaking. I have to be very thoughtful and mindful of everyone and their feelings. It's a lot to take on!
