Overscheduled

Overscheduled – yep, that’s us.

I am opposed to kids being involved in so many activities that they don’t have time to be a kid. And yet, suddenly, that seems to be us. I’m even too overscheduled to write much about it, except to say that you should be careful before you sign your kid up for baseball, because it is a really big time commitment!

Right now we have:

  • Ice skating (both girls)
  • Baseball (just K, but it’s 2-3 times per week!!!)
  • Swimming (just B this session, if I can figure out a way to get K to baseball)

Being the only adult in the family really sucks sometimes….

  1. I know how you feel about being overscheduled. We are a blended family with seven kids. Even when each of the kids is participating in only one activity we are constantly on the go. One Saturday we had a rugby game, soccer game, dance competition, and a gathering to help an uncle move. Whew!

  2. I’m overscheduled and my children are young adults! I got so used to chaos, I continued it even after they grew up and flew away.

  3. Right now we have tumbling once a week (both kids, assuming DeBoy’s awake for it), dance once a week (the recital is Saturday so that will be over for the summer), and storytime at the library once a week. But for a 4- and 2-year-old, that feels like a lot. DeBoy can start dance in the fall. We’re also considering trading out tumbling for soccer next year, depending on what they want to do. And we want to do swimming lessons soon, too. Of course, that won’t be an ongoing thing. No swim teams around here. Or ice skating either.
