For any of you residing in the UK who think the school holidays are going on for too long then please give some thought to us poor moms in USA. We have three months. YES I SAID THREE MONTHS of summer holidays. There are only so many camps the kids can go to before the coffers run dry and mother starts to go slowly insane.....
I think the reasoning behind the three month holiday is because in many parts of the USA it is boiling hot and kids without air con would melt into their desks. So I understand it I just think they should have year round school with a week off every month or something like that.
I had a good laugh at this blog post by Hurrah for Gin called How to Lazily Entertain Your Kids this Summer and it made me wish my kids were small and could spend seven hours a day with a watering can and a paddling pool rather than an ipad and cooking a cake while leaving sixteen pans for me to clean up.
But look at that post for some great tips- it is really rather hilarious!
So yes, I have been going dotty....I have been seeing spots in front of my eyes. Yes I am channeling Seurat and just started dotting around until I made this cute little polka dot fox.
My little fox is available at BoomBoomPrints which is a really fun company that creates art and clothes for little ones. The guys and gals at BoomBoom are really cool and friendly so I'd recommend them if you've ever wanted to see your art emblazoned on a t-shirt or tote bag.
