we've been active for a month, since school dismissed for the summer. we've had two trips, a beach vacation, a wedding, and library/museum/parks/movies visits. we have nothing now..and all he wants is to have a sleepover with a friend, either here or there.
i've called two of his friends' moms, and nothing. one always has a reason why it can't be 'tonight', and the other simply never returned our call! called and texted, nothing.
he walks outside hoping someone, anyone will be playing, and its been so hot, no one is. they're either not home or at a babysitter's house or busy doing other things.
he thinks its my fault.
for a 7yo-only, its so simple: you want to do something, your mom makes it happen.
for a 43yo, its not so simple.
so, how do you handle these bored-with-just-mom moments?
It's particularly tough with an only. I struggled a LOT with this issue when Freyja was here.
