The Truth About Summer

The Truth About Summer

Okay... this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here it goes. I don't like summer break. Eek, there I said it. Actually, let me rephrase that. I don't like summer break as much as I think I should, as society tells me I should. 

Children are exhausting... young children especially. I have three children, that range in age from twelve years old to seven months old. I have been through almost every stage except the teen years (pray for me). I have never been more tired than I am now. And yes, I know this will pass. I know this won't last forever. I know there are so many beautiful moments that I will one day miss. 

But it doesn't change the fact that some days I am on the struggle bus. Some days, I just want five minutes to sit and have my coffee and "turn off." I can't be alone in this. Actually, I know I am not. There is another mom reading this right now, saying, yes, this is me too. 

Summer means entertaining them 24 hours a day! There are a lot of big expectations for summer, to give them good experiences and memories. We love our children and we truly want them to have unforgettable summers. But between the baby crying, work on the phone, the dog barking, errands that need running, and you name it... the time slips away. 

This is what Kidz Create is all about. Filling those moments and helping a mom (or dad) entertain, play, and teach their child in the small moments of the day. It's a five minute break of quiet time where they color and work on an activity book while you sit with them and drink a coffee. In those small quiet moments you can regain your sanity, your focus, and keep going with the day. 

There is two times of the year these quiet moments are needed more than ever... summer time and can you guess the other one? Christmas! (We will talk about that one later.) 

If you have read this and related at all, then know I have created these items and built this store with you in mind. To try to help pass the time at a restaurant when that waiter is taking absolutely forever. To pass the time in a long car ride that just became even longer as you are stuck in a traffic jam. And to give you five minutes to open your eyes when it's 5:00 a.m. and they want to play already. 

Have a good summer everyone! Stock up on snacks and Kidz Create activties:)
