So, I am still working. You can read more about that here. I get up at 5 am (most days) and work until the twins get up at 10 am (most days). Yes, that is late. We let them stay up late so I can actually get some work done. Conor is quiet. The twins? Well, the twins are not. I can work with Conor awake. Not so much the twinnies.
But when the twinnies do get up? I switch from Professor to Mom. I'm not used to being a SAHM and having all the kids at home. When summer started, I was freaking out over What. The. Heck we were going to do all day, every day, all summer. I even made a basket of activities so I could pull an activity out of the hat and do it if we ever got too bored.
That has not happened.
We are having a blast. We joined a local pool and go there many days a week. We've hit the kid and adult museums. We've gone to parks. We've gone to different libraries. We visited my parents. We've taken walks and runs (!) around the neighborhood. We've played at home and we've played at others.
This is the most fun summer I've ever had. It's also the most *productive* summer as far as research goes that I've ever had. The one thing it is not? It is NOT the cleanest my house has ever been. You'd THINK that with all this time at home, I'd be compelled to keep the house clean. You'd think wrong.
I think that I have a choice: I can either work and keep a clean house or I can work and have fun. I vote work and fun. I have no idea how SAHMs do it.
But this is the first of only a few summers when all three kids are home. I love my new working schedule. And I ABSOLUTELY love my new Mommy schedule. I could still use a nap, but that's the plight of being a (working) mom.
