Survived Spring Break

Posted by on March 19, 2012

Spring break is over -  finally!  This was the worst spring break I think I’ve ever had.  Not that I ever did much over spring break during college.  I wasn’t one of those people that went to the beach.  Instead I would go climbing, camping, or hiking.  Occasionally, I would visit family for a week, especially if they were offering to cook me meals!  There is nothing like a home cooked meal when you are in college.

I didn’t figure that spring break would affect me since I’m not in college anymore!  However living in a college town that shuts down during spring break you feel the effect!  My normal baby activities were all canceled last week – no kindermusik or park playdate, and our breastfeeding support group would be downsized.  I thought that wouldn’t be too bad, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong!

From Monday until Thursday I was lonely!  I didn’t realize how much I had begun to rely on my weekly activities for adult conversation.  A few of the moms in the support group were back in town on Thursday, and I had them over for an impromptu lunch & playdate.  Then Friday we had another lunch playdate with some of the other support group moms.  In retrospect, I should have gone to the breastfeeding support group even though the majority of the moms were gone.

Today kicks off our NEW weekly activity schedule and I couldn’t be more excited!

  • Monday – first swim lesson at the college for my Wild Child
  • Tuesday – kindermusik
  • Wednesday – open
  • Thursday – park playdate
  • Friday- breastfeeding support group & 2nd swim lesson

I’m THRILLED that we are going to have some busy weeks ahead of us.  I might live in the south, were things are supposed to be relaxed, but I love to be busy!

How do you stay busy?  What activities are fun for babies under one?

    I feel your pain! I try to only schedule stuff for 2-3 days a week, but I sure miss it when we don’t have stuff planned.

    Maggie is sick and didn’t go to our baby class this morning, and I miss it!
