Help! I am trapped in my house with bored children!
Thursday, January 20, 2011
My car won't start and it is a 98 minute bus ride to my kids' school. That would be a total of 6 hours on the bus, lots of standing in the cold, and frozen feet. I have low, low, low bp and a low core temperature so cold is not my friend.
So I told the kids they could stay home today. It is 10:00 am my time. They have both finished extra math, and reading assignments. I just chose randomly from their book. They also did their spelling pre-tests. Fed the animals. Ran around the house. And now they are bored.
They are currently playing with the cat and dog. And by playing I mean they are running around the house meowing, woofing, and laughing. I don't know who is having more fun, the kids or the critters. I give it half an hour before everyone is bored.
Maybe they the can play "clean the house"...I mean mad scientist with polishing rags and toilet scrubbers...yes, I am an evil Mom, but I haven't scrubbed a toilet or tub in 7 years! HAH!
