I tortured myself yesterday.
Knowing that my not coping is directly related to my boys’ reaching milestones and (shock horror) getting bored, I knew I had to change something.
And so, like the good little blogger I am, I spent as much time as I could looking at my favourite go-to kids’ activity/staying sane during kids’ fun blogs.
And at the first stop I found this.
I’m seething with jealousy.
I WANT that rumpus room.
And I WANT Shae to come and set it up for me.
Also to clean it.
Failing that, I’ve decided to sneak $100 from the family budget and head down to the shops and see what I can see.
And by sneak I mean I’ve told Pal that if this $100 doesn’t exist within the budget, I don’t care.
You heard right – $100 to set up a half decent play area on my front porch.
Within one day.
This is what the porch looks like as of 11pm last night:
Random assortment of vac-packed kids’ clothes, portacot, pram accessories, baby playstations, single pram, massive annoying cupboard, Precious (who will still need to fit on the porch as it is her home), chalk wall, meshed fence for protection against and for mountain goats.
I will be tweeting/instagramming/facebooking my day as I go, from start to finish.
I’ll be back tonight with a proper update!
Either I do this, or my doctor is going to need to prescribe me some tranquillisers.
Wish me luck!
