Oh. Wait. I just did it again, didn't I?
I always swore that I'd never be one of *those* moms who overscheduled her kids and who spent every afternoon shuffling her children from one activity to the next. Never, never, never.
Well, guess what?
I have realized that it doesn't take much to be one of those moms. With scheduling conflicts and something to do every afternoon in a week and oh, no, we forgot to do homework!
My children are all in karate. Once a week. The oldest does Cub Scouts and the middle one just started Brownies. That's it. Oh. Except for the PTA Board meetings. And the GT parent board meetings. And the games nights. Crap. Can you say overscheduled?
It's kind of wearing on me. But if there were only one of them, it wouldn't seem so much, but it's when you have three, who all have one or two activities. There go all of our days of the week. But where do you draw the line? It doesn't seem that they do so much, but MY schedule seems so full. I've even resorted to keeping a calendar. I mean, me? a calendar? You know how busy it is for me if I'm keeping it all written down in a place other than on my hand.
Never, never, never speak in absolutes. Never. It always comes back to get you. Always.
