Yes, it is indeed that time of year I take my annual Spring Break. I am at home catching up on all those pesky things that I've put off until now.
But seeing that it's that time of year for Spring Breaks, here's a few things to remember:
The kids aren't in school!!! Duh! Have daycare/supervision (if needed) lined up, activities (this includes chores!) for them to do if you can't take the time off. If your children are older and don't need babysitting, schedule regular check-in times/texts. Go over the household rules - basically which are; check with Mom or Dad before doing ANYTHING!
Whether doing a day trip or full week vacation, there are essentials that a parent needs to have on hand so get that bag stocked:
- wet wipes
- small first aid and sewing kit
- any medications you or your kids need
Most of all - stay safe, stay sane (yeah, right lol!) and have a wonderful time!
Have a great week!
