A group of moms having fun at a Come Paint WIth Us classFinally, the kids are back in school. Not that we don’t absolutely love them, but they sure can be a handful during the summer break!
But once they’re back into their daily school routine, what about us moms? We’re readjusting our daily routine too since we don’t have the kids during the day. What will you do with all this kid-free time? Some call this the post-summer blues. But there’s no need to stay down in the dumps.
The best way to adjust to a significant change is to embrace it and then meet it head-on with things to occupy your time. Sure, you’ll need to tackle your to-do, packed with constructive activities like meal-planning, laundry, and errands. But why not plan some activities with your mom friends that are just plain fun, such as a paint and sip class?
