This is #day19.
Over the summer, I am writing a short post about our day. The posts highlight some of our fun times, boring times, and imperfect times.
Boy sleeps peacefully until 06:18. I have been awake since before 04:34.
. The room
. . . . . . . . . . . . . is
. . . . . . . hot
. . . . dry.
My throat craves water. I think about the day ahead.
• Go slow
• Go nowhere
• Catch up with Papa
• Catch up with work
The morning unfurls as planned.
Boy puts cars in a tube and pours them out.
Boy conducts a colour survey.
He records favourite colours and which colours we are each wearing.
A math quiz follows.
Everyone gets the wrong answers.
Except me. I am not allowed to lose.
Time for the animal park.
Daddy says the pig looks like me.
Boy laughs and giggles and repeats the “joke” a lot.
Back to Papa’s house.
Major chill. An abundance of screen time.
Exhaustion smothers any guilt I might feel.
Boy needs this as much as I do.
We need a break from burgers and fries.
Excitement explodes as we count the aisles and arrive at a giant, walk-in fridge.
Boy chills with the iPad.
I cook for everyone.
I did not win the Model Parent Award.
Boy won Excessive Screen Time Award.
Daddy didn’t win the Loving Husband Award.
Tonight, I watched a 3D printer in action. Tomorrow, we’ll hang out in nature.
Do you have days with a lot of screen time? How do you manage screen time guilt?
