Crazy Things We Do For Our Kids



This year Mr. J wants to attend sleep away summer camp with his cousin.  The particular camp that they are going to is EXTREMELY popular, and only has one registration day - and it's in person.  People from all over the city (and outskirts) want to send their kids to this camp.

Due to the popularity of the camp, parents start lining up outside the church before 5am.  That's right - registration starts at 8am, and there are people there 3-4 hours early.

I arrived at 510, and there were at least 40 people ahead of me. By 6 am, I couldn't see where the line ended.

They changed the process this year, and at 630 started handing out cards with a time to come back. This worked well, we went for breakfast and then headed back for our time of 800am.  When we got back to the church, there was a line up of people waiting to get in for their time slot.  A few parents showed up that hadn't been waiting in line at 630, and there were no spots left for them.

All the craziness aside, I am so happy that he is going to summer camp.  I was a child that didn't even want to sleep at someones house for one night, so I never braved summer camp.  I am glad he is excited to go!

What kind of ridiculous things have you done for your kids?

Spring Cleaning Is Happening

If you are a regular Tales of Mommyhood follower, then you are likely aware how much I dislike cleaning. I have absolutely no motivation to clean (unless we are having company) and will happily do just about anything else to procrastinate.

A friend of mine was hosting a Spring Cleaning Challenge on facebook, so I decided to join in and give it a shot. I though if I had a group to be accountable to, it would help.

I was right. I have been on a cleaning streak since joining the challenge.  It started off with doing a deep clean of the bathrooms (one task each day for a few days) then the laundry room, and now working on the kitchen (again, 1 task/ day).

Breaking it down into small chunks has made such a difference. Since I can happily put cleaning off, it always end up being a big job for me. I need to get into the habit of doing a few small tasks daily, instead of becoming overwhelmed with the entire house needing top to bottom clean.

Also, spring weather has finally found us and I have been able to turn off the heat in the house! Not really spring cleaning related at all, but it makes me happy.

Happy spring!
