How to survive school holidays when you work from home.



School holidays and the world of the WAHM do not go hand in hand. I have to admit it has been one hell of a ride so far. I have already told them never again. Next School hols they will be in a holiday program.

I do think my problem is, I don't plan activities. So for the next three weeks I am going to try harder to make sure they are set up to keep occupied for a few hours, while I get my work done.  Fingers crossed these few ideas help me get through the rest of the holidays without totally losing my mind. Wish me luck!

You've definitely got to have a plan, Trace. The kids are great at entertaining themselves, but only if you give them strict instructions on what's happening and when. I hope you found your happy balance in the end. School's back soon!! x
