Wow, the summer schedule is complicated and intense this time around. Every few days, I try to block out the chaos around me so I can sit down and figure out what we are doing on what day; make appointments; communicate with the MIL about which day the kids will go to her house for dinner. and we are not even all that busy with ‘activities’ and trips compared to a lot of families! June is especially tough since DH is taking a semester’s worth of class in one month; this puts virtually all of the household and childcare responsibilities on me virtually all of the time.
I find myself wondering: Do other moms have to do this as well? This intense effort to get a grip on the schedule?
