Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
While the teachers and students are celebrating the end of the school year, I’m terrified. What am I going to do with the girls all summer long? How will I keep them entertained? How do I keep my sanity intact? Oh man, I need to go grocery shopping to get snacks and lunches and….is it bedtime yet? All of a sudden, it’s ME that has transition issues and I’m not ready for summer!
Yes, it will be nice to get a break from the routine of homework, spelling practice, math questions (that I swear I never learned), and last-minute projects. Stress will be diminished with weekly pajama parties and sleeping in a bit more. But we aren’t like your typical family. We don’t get to pick up and go places on a whim. My youngest daughter relies on her schedules and routines, and private therapies will continue. And because I waited until the last minute, camps are already full and waitlists are lengthy for my oldest NT daughter. (Procrastinators unite!). Our plate is full and summer is starting to seem boring, monotonous, and blech.
But I’ve decided that we’re going to have some fun this summer, somehow. I’m going to put on my mommy-organizing-planning pants on and come up with a plan. I call it my Summer Strategy.
This summer, my girls deserve to make memories that will last a lifetime. We do have a lot on our plates with a heavy therapy schedule, but we’re going to do our best to make it the best summer ever.
It's serious. It's sarcastic. It's sweet. It's sincere.
