With a teenager in the house life seems to sometimes revert back to when there was a toddler in the house. Going out anywhere takes four times longer than it should. Conversation has been reduced to a series of noises and bedtime is a nightmare, needing military precision planning and bribery.
I know things are being re-wired in his brain. He’s going through a transformation of sorts, so I can almost forgive him.
It would be nice, however, to be able to do things as a family without a thousand complaints from the teenager!
If Chris and I think it’s awesome you can guarantee that Christopher will hate it…
With that in mind I thought we should formulate a plan for activities over the summer holidays. That way there will be no arguments, we’ll all have something going on that we like and everyone will be happy 😀
Here’s our list (so far) of some things we’re going to do over the summer!
- Read a book
- Quad biking
- Night walk
- Night drive
- Horse riding
- Paddle boarding
- Go Ape!
- Visit Chris’ Mum
- Llama Trekking
- Brimham Rocks
- Get ice cream
- Board game day
We might not get them all done but I think we’ve plenty to go on for now and at least this way Christopher can’t complain because he helped make the list 😉
Anymore suggestions are welcome!
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
Be happy and keep smiling 😀
