Long Days of Summer


Taj's latest favorite toys: McQueen and Mater. He actually has to go to bed with them. I creep into his room every night and pry them out of his little fingers so he doesn't wake up the imprint of tires of his face.
Nothing inspiring or earth-shattering has happened lately with the Morse clan. We've just been living out the long, hot summer days hoping for fall to get here soon. I get bored staying at home and I know Taj does too, so we hit the park every morning (because I won't die of heat), the kiddie pool or public pool in the afternoon, and a jog in the stroller with dad at night. I'm curious, what do all you stay-at-home moms do during the day? I need some ideas so I don't go mad with boredom!
On a side note, we went swimming at the Bountiful Recreation Center today and stayed for two whole hours! I couldn't believe that I lasted that long, but Taj was having such a good time playing in the kiddie area that even if I would've wanted to have left earlier, I wouldn't have physically been able to carry him out because his fits are so bad. I don't know why they say terrible twos, cause I feel like we've already been living it the past year. If it gets any worse, that boy's going to boot camp! (seriously though, he's already been kicked out of nursery once)Other events made the pool very exciting today, like the fire alarm went off four times and somebody pooped in the pool, or rather by the side of the pool. I couldn't help but laugh when the lifeguards put three GIANT cones around a tiny little turd. Come guys, any mom would've had that cleaned up in two seconds with a clorox wipe. Next thing we know, everyone's been kicked out of the pool and they brought in a giant vacuum to suck up the little poopoo. Well at least we know they keep the pool clean!

Glad I'm not the only with a kid who misbehaves:) Nicole does ok but tonight at my SIL Brooke's house she would not stop hitting. It's so hard at this age because they DON'T listen. As a stay-at-home mom I keep pretty busy. Chad keeps telling me to have the t.v. disconnected cause we never use it:) Nicole keeps me busy...some mornings I just want to sleep ha ha sure you know what I mean. I like to run, and read, I'm constantly doing projects around the house! My SIL and I like to take the kids swimming and we hang out alot while are hubbys are at work. Too bad you're not closer:)

At least your kid goes to nursery! Mine won't step foot in the door! I was having the same problem getting bored as a stay at home mom. This summer has been so much better though. My SIL and I decided we were going to have one fun activity every day for our boys. Mondays we go to the park and grocery shopping, Tuesday we take the boys to a music class that is really fun, Wed is swimming, Thurs we take them to story time at the library and do puzzles after, Fri is different every week. It has helped time go by so much better. Sounds like you stay busy too.

I am like you, I get really bored during the day. It's too hot to be outside in the middle of the day and there isn't much to do inside. I need to find some good ideas too. Keziah loves to hit and push as well:)
