It Can't be This Hard

Was it always this difficult?

We were organizing swimming suits, extra clothes, towels, bags, sun tan lotion, hats, sun glasses, and who knows what else.  Granted, field day only happens once a year, but this was not our first field day.

It was a tad hectic, to say the least.

Hubby said it was because we now have 3 to organize, or get organized.  I  was giving them the lists, they were responsible for the rest. 

There was much discussion, clarification, arguing, more clarification, reminders, and another discussion.

The idea of making the kids pack their own bags is to make my life easier.

With 3 kids, you hand over more and more responsibilities to the kids.  It is supposed to make the parent's life easier.

However, I was still involved, highly involved; telling them what to pack, and how to pack.

Next step, telling 3 kids to get it done, and let them figure out what "it" is.

This helicopter mom needs to fly away.  I'm thinking the Bahamas?
