Did I ever mention what a great mom I am? Oh, it is so true. I have the perfect summer plans for my kids. We're going to get a rec pass and go swimming every morning. I'm going to teach them how to swim myself; no need for a third party. Two days a week, I'll take Geneva to summer camp and she'll have to much fun that when she comes home, it'll be be nothing but sunshine from her. Every Monday we'll take advantage of the movie theater deal ($.75). Oh, and I'm thinking we'll go to Seven Peaks a couple times. We can park in the parking lot at my work and just walk. Oh, and of course we'll take several short road trips. We haven't been to Moab with the kids, so I'll load up the tent and sleeping bags and we'll plan a picnic on the way and make sure we have lots of treats and I'll do some research and print out and make some games for the trip and maybe have a scavenger hunt somewhere in there. Oh, and I'm going to take the kids on several fieldtrips. I think the Steven's Cocoa factory would be cool. We gotta go to the ropes course place. Oh, and in the evenings, we'll walk the Provo trail, hand-in-hand, just happy to be together.
I woke up this morning. We really could save ourselves $60 if we don't get the rec pass. Besides, Grandma and Grandpa have a pond/creek and ropes course. We can save even more money if we just go up there occasionally. The theater doesn't have any PG movies. Well, we own around 200 videos--maybe we'll start pulling those out. Picnic? Yikes! Is it lunch time already? Nobody's had breakfast? Umm.....there's frozen burritos in the freezer. Just cook yourself up one of those. Look, we can set up the tent in the backyard sometime. You're right, our backyard is too small for a tent. Well, maybe we can do that at Grandma's too. we forgot about Geneva's camp yesterday. Cripes! Well, put it on the calendar so we don't forget tomorrow. Yes, Todd, I'll go rollerskating with you, but today isn't the best day. Let's try Friday when Dad can watch the other kids. Anybody want to watch a "kid show?"
Well, I've still got 2 more months of summer. I'm still a perfect parent...just not this week.
