The Waiting Games!

 

Friday Friday Friday!!  

Today’s topic…waiting.  Specifically for children 🙂

This pretty much sums up my week and I think this is a topic that a lot of mom’s out there can relate to.  My girly does cheer and tumbling.  She’s tried out lots of different activities but these are the ones that she’s passionate about.  Don’t get me wrong, I love that my daughter gets regular exercise, learns team work, self discipline, and confidence.  It’s just the waiting…ugh.

We do not have a cheer gym or tumbling facility near our home.  It is about a 25-30 minute drive to the gym every time we go, which is always during high traffic, boo.  Once we get there, classes range from 75 minutes for advance tumbling, to 3 hours for cheer or choreography.  Girly attends 3-5 days a weeks and most of the time, it’s in the 2-2.5 hour range. 

Now, what is a mom to do while her kiddo is working hard learning new skills??  Shop, read, play Candy Crush, workout, run, and try to find ways to be productive while waiting.

A lot of evenings, I just feel like I’m living in the car.  Here’s Val doing her homework while we wait for her class to start.  We head here straight from school, so she has to change, eat, and start homework before class.

This is how I felt 🙂  I know I’ve got a 2 hour wait and no errands to run!!  Why did I have to be so darn efficient earlier today! Haha!

My waiting buddy!!  We spend a lot of time brainstorming, organizing our “to do” list, and chatting about how cute he is.

Now that the weather is getting ugly I won’t be spending as much time walking or running outside while I wait.  I need some new time passers.

What do you do while you’re waiting??
