As the kids have all gotten out for Summer break by now, I quickly see where the problem is going to be. 

There has to always be one. 

This year it will be electronics. I can’t stand how lazy electronic options have made my kids. If it’s not one thing it’s another. Kindles, televisions, Dad’s Xbox, older brothers PlayStation. 

Who care about bikes, scooters, trampolines and swimming pools that are all at out fingertips. None of that seems to matter. 

Today I got mad and told them that if I caught them just sitting and staring at the big dumb box any more without at least playing with Legos or army guys, that I would unplug the televisions for the whole summer. 

Man what a cool mom I’ve become.
