Robby's first day of summer vacation is now in the books, and the day was non eventful at best. It was hot, muggy and Timmy was miserable. I spent the majority of my day trying to console a frustrated and uncomfortable three year old, leaving Robby to his own devices. He spent the majority of his time on the computer, playing Minecraft.
It was not my
best parenting demonstration, but the summer is long and we will have
time for adventures. Yesterday was about toddler triage and survival.
Hopefully Timmy's fever will leave and my sweet little adventurous boy
will return. Where Robby becomes loving and sweet when he is sick, his
brother is the opposite. Timmy becomes extremely grumpy when he doesn't
feel well, making it nearly impossible to console or to comfort him.
Hopefully Timmy is feeling better today because we have an
end-of-the-school-year adventure planned. Robby's class is meeting at
the Shooting Fountains for an afternoon of pizza, milkshakes and
splashing fun. I know that Timmy will delight in the activity. He loves
nothing more than being in the proximity of Robby and his friends.
Although Timmy loves trying to pal around with Robby and his friends,
big brother has a different perspective.
Assuming he is
feeling better, I will be spending my afternoon trying to wrangle and
distract him from the "big kids" so that Robby can enjoy some time with
his friends. Wish me luck!
