Oh. My. Gosh.  Its so freaking hot I'm dying.  We have AC's blasting and its still hot and humid and in the 80s.  This morning I took DS to the park then gave up after a half hour and both of us were covered in sweat.  Then we came home, I threw him in a cool bath and we read books for an hour, played with a new magic kit he got for his birthday, and for the last 3 hours I've let him hang out in his underwear and play games on the ipad in the my AC'd room...  I even ordered in dinner (too hot to cook) and we ate it on my bed (one ac is in my room and its smaller so it cools down quicker).  I feel like a failure because this is the most lazy parenting I've ever done but its soooooooooo hot I just can't leave the house and its zapping my energy so all I feel like we can do is just lay here!

Yesterday we did stuff outside the house and just going to each place we were covered in sweat and it was exhausting!  I can't do it again today!  JUST CAN'T FACE THE HEAT LOL!

How often do you have lazy days to this extent?  :)

I need to get over it!  LOL I feel like a failure.  I always try to at least do one fun activity a day and today its freaking impossible.  I'm giving up :)

Any creative ideas to do with him in the room?  I literally feel like I can't leave my room because even the bathroom is heated up to about 90+ degrees.  This sucks.  I feel like my AC's are broken, its not THAT hot outside (as compared to other days) but it just seems like the humidity is at an all time high so its just so muggy.....  I let him jump on the bed for a bit :) But thats about it!
