And therefore, I am singing this song
It’s the last day of school for Maura, God help us. Once again summer is looming with its “What am I going to do with this particular child?” thoughts. I haven’t heard about any sort of ESY, so I guess we don’t qualify? But we haven’t had ESY (extended school year) since Michigan, so we’re a bit used to not having ESY anymore.
I do know the first thing Maura will want to do – and that’s sleep in.
Yes, we’re both looking forward to sleeping in this summer. I love that this child loves to sleep, and sleep in. LOVE IT. It’s my little perk, and I am thankful for it.
But other than sleeping in and trying to keep her off my computer, I’m not sure what to do with her. I haven’t found any summer programs for her kind yet. I’m sure they are out there, but I haven’t heard of them yet. I’d be happy with a day camp scenario but have yet to find one for a kid with “something”. Oh sure, there’s autism camps and deaf camps and cancer camps and MS camps and hemophilia camps – and all those are great! I love seeing my friends kids be able to find a camp that fits their needs. We just need to find one to fit ours. Preferably sponsored by Starbucks.
Maybe I could just pay the teen girl of mine to play “summer camp” with her sister. It would involve nail painting and dance parties. I’m okay with that.
Yeah, I should have started looking into this sooner, huh?
What am I going to do with this child? Yipes.
