Can I get an amen for some down time?
As the parent of two active boys, I try to make sure they have plenty of events to keep them moving and having fun. But when we started this Web site, I asked some smart moms for secrets on how they keep the family train running. I got lots of responses (thanks to you all) but this one really made me take notice. My friend Sandi said that she tries not to over-schedule her son and daughter. "I think that they enjoy simple things because of that and enjoy hanging out at home, which is free. I’m fortunate enough to not have to work right now and can get away with this." Whether you work outside the home or not, maybe just taking a weekend to stay at home, play board games and have some face time with your kids is a good idea. I'll remember
that the next time it feels like swimmingsoccerbirthdaypartybaseball is getting a little out of hand.
