Sometimes I feel like being a stay at home mom requires me to be a constant cruise director. Thankfully, I have a great older sister who likes to plan things and organize. Hence, my job as cruise director requires less work when we all get together. Big sis plans many activities for us and our little foursome of kiddos. That said, I love when I come up with a an idea of something we haven't done yet. It is BIG! We have done the zoo, the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, and most of the parks in Santa Barbara over and over. It does get tiring to think of new things to do.
I did it today, though. Hiking with all of our little munchkins around Lake Los Carneros.
The only bummer of the day, Gus got in the car and started complaining about how tired he was and that I was a mean mom because I made him hike. Fast forward an hour and he is still grumpy...AND sick. Fever. Poor boy. The grumpy behavior explained.
