Because Prompts are Fun: Looking Forward to Summertime Activities
Do you have cabin fever? I know I do and I suspect Rissa does too. I don’t think Brian is affected quite as much since he works outside the home most of the time and Xander… well, he doesn’t care where we are as long as mama is near by to nurse him.
The other day it snowed a bunch here in Wisconsin bringing snowbank heights taller than my toddler. Although she loves to play in the snow, we are all getting tired of being cooped up in the house so much. We spend much more time outdoors in the warmer months. I am getting a bit stir crazy and my crappy attitude shows it. I try not to let it by thinking positively, but the truth is it is a struggle. My patience is thin and I get frustrated with everything more quickly.
Even though I had a break from the house and kids the other day to get my hair done, it wasn’t enough. In some ways I think it made the itch worse! So, Rissa and I have been daydreaming about what we’ll be doing when the warm weather comes. She keeps asking if it is summertime yet!
So here are the activities we are most looking forward to:
- Going for walks
- Storytime at the library
- Tumbling class
- Swimming lessons
- Playing with the water table
- Going to the park
- Going to the zoo
I love that Rissa has memories of these activities last year and is asking for them. These kept us busy last year!
Are you dealing with cabin fever? How do you treat yours?
