Summer barbecues, water balloon fights and fireworks are great excuses to get out of the house. It is so very important that you recharge your batteries once in a while so that you can continue doing that great job of parenting.
If you are one of the millions of parents who have chosen this lifestyle, you probably did it so you could oversee the health and well being of your children, and because you love being with your children. So, if a babysitter is not for you, then plan outdoor events that include your kids. They will never forget you took the time to share the experiences of life with them.
Even the best of parents do need some ‘me’ time once in a while or ‘grown-up’ time. If this is you, then consider hiring that babysitter and taking to the town with a friend or spouse. Your children will enjoy the refreshed ‘you’ that they see afterwards.
Plan some fun time out of the house this year, you deserve it. You’ll be all the more glad for it as your life will feel more full and exciting.
