The Twelve Days of Summer Vacation

I don’t know about you, but I’m still in full summer vacation mode with my two munchkins at home. We are now in the post summer school/VBS/relative-hosting part of summer and have entered into the¬†What are we supposed to do for the rest of the month?! time. It has been, to put it in soap opera terms, an ongoing episode of “The Young and the Restless”. ūüėČ But all this time spent with E and C has inspired me to write a song.

Without further ado, here is the SAHM’s version of “The Twelve Days of Summer Vacation”. (Of course there are more than twelve days of summer vacation, but if I had done “The Eighty-two Days of Summer Vacation”, we’d be here¬†till next year.) ūüôā

On the first day of summer vacation, my two kids gave to me … a bounty of¬†whine, but no cheese.

On the second day of summer vacation, my two kids gave to me … two weary ears and a bounty of whine, but no cheese.

The song for this post is Frozen’s “In Summer“, which I would recommend listening to with your kiddo(s) – it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your faces. ūüôā

How do you keep your kiddos entertained during summer vacation?
