A certain conversation I readily admit to eavesdropping on still results in my jaw dropping every time I think about it...a fellow mom seriously bragging that she had spent over $1,000 (that's right ONE THOUSAND BIG ONES) on summer activities for her...wait for it...3 year old. Spanish camp, tennis camp, (my personal fav) pirate camp, music camp, soccer lessons, and I can't even remember what else. Is it just me or is that absolutely insane??!! Whatever happened to letting kids just PLAY???
Timmy does have one structured activity lined up for the summer: swim lessons. The dude loves his swimming.
What our days won't include is every summer camp available, Spanish/French lessons, sports camps, and television. (I readily admit this is all easier when one parent is a stay at home...having worked outside the home myself until Timmy was 2) Is it horrible that I actually feel sorry for this lady's daughter?
