I sit here, the house is quiet, babies napping...
Something is missing...
That something being my energetic 5 year old who I have "shipped" off to camp this week.
Sports camp...for the "energy" in him.
WHY DO I HAVE GUILT?
I have never done camp before, I certainly never thought I would have the need to send Cole to camp this summer given all the stuff I had planned for us! Swimming, biking, exploring, board games, fusion beads, coloring...the list is endless.
But these twins put a damper in his "fun" somedays. The two 2 hour naps I get from the twins is a mothers dream...and a 5 year olds nightmare. We are stuck in the house, using our "inside" voices.
I noticed Cole seemed a bit bored so I asked him about camp. NO WAY was his answer...until he chatted with a pal who had been to sports camp...all of a sudden it was YES, CAMP!! The peer pressure of 5 year olds...
So from 9-4 each day he is busy playing sports, making crafts, conducting science experiments and hopefully making friends.
I have a laundry list of errands to run this week for my sisters shower, stagette and wedding, and I know I should enjoy this time to get things done and possibly take some time for myself when the twins nap but I feel guilty.
Cheer me up camp moms!!
