The predictable and well-oiled routines of a typical school day fall to the wayside once summer hits. That’s a good thing, right?
We can’t all enjoy a summer trip to the Hamptons or travel abroad for cultural education opportunities. And, looking at everyone’s picture-perfect Instagram posts of Disneyland-Days and Concerts-in-the-Park Nights can create some summertime blues. Been there. Done that.
For many moms, the lack of routine can leave them feeling underwhelmed. In fact, did you know, being out of routine can create a depression in people? So, if you have been wondering what is wrong with you - fear not!
SOLUTION: Getting outdoors, connecting with others, and setting up a lighter, but regular, routine may help.
Well, that and ICE CREAM!
July is National Ice Cream Month. I do not make these things up. It’s true! Perhaps it is because there are 31-derful days ahead of us.
To welcome in July and add some sunshine to your days, I have come up with three ways you can use #IceCream to motivate your child (and YOU) to create some RAH and reduce the BLAH.
Now, post yours (or any of the ice cream ideas I mentioned) on your social media of choice, but PLEASE tag me so that I may read it, too. Maybe, just maybe, I will ask for your permission to post it on my website.
Scrumptious and cold
Holding it in my hand
Makes a summer day wonderful
Well, I need to get some ice cream now. But, remember, just like any season, this too shall come and go quickly. Make the most of the long hot days and those sweet summer nights. Stay connected and make your summer a wonderful one.
