Arriving at the resort, many parents give their children to have a real blast, not following the rules of ordinary life. But since for us the rest on the sea differs from the ordinary life only by the presence of this sea and the absence of a kindergarten, we adhere to the regime.
Probably, I should be ashamed, but I do not know what time my child gets up. Rather, I know only sometimes – when I hear him sleep it off. It is usually around 8am. He gets up, sits on the pot, puts on sandals (there is a tile on the floor) and goes to play quietly.
I get up (I try very hard) at 9. I wash my face, take the pot, make the bed and ask the child what it wants for breakfast. If the child breaks for a long time, then he is offered a choice of one of two things.
At about 10 we arrive at the beach. And until recently we were the very first! Although I struggle all the time to get up earlier and come earlier, while the sun is not so strong. In the morning the sea is smooth, you can splash from the heart, walk on your hands and indulge in every way.
Somewhere to 12 we are going home. The sun at the zenith, we do not like. Came, showered, changed clothes. If necessary – anointed with cream. Then we have lunch and sleep. We have dinner somewhere in the hour, we keep to two. Those. ate, washed the dishes, read the book and bainki. Rather, the child bainki, and I – to work.
After a siesta, comrade stands up in different ways – now at three, then at five. Depends on many factors. If you get up normally and have time, then he has an easy afternoon snack, then we go to the beach. If there is already plenty of time, then light afternoon tea is taken along to the sea. As a rule, these are berries – cherries, peaches, apricots.
After lunch on the beach is good because the sea is warmer and the shade of palm trees. It would have sat until the evening, but it was not there!
At six o’clock (at half past six) we arrive home. We wash, change clothes, have dinner and go on cars. This is holy. We have this good both to the left of the house and to the right. Only the right work every day, and the left – only on weekends (until July). Therefore, on weekdays we go to the right, and on weekends – to the left.
Sometimes, on the way there or back, we can briefly go to the playground. If time allows.
No matter how hard I tried to put my comrade to bed at nine, before ten I could not. While they came, while they changed their clothes, they read a book, they drank milk – the night was outside. Someone goes to sleep, and someone to work. Who studied what, as they say.
This is our standard mode, but there are exceptions to the points of the program. For example, in food. Basically, I watch the baby eat well 2 times a day. Well – this is porridge, scrambled eggs with sausage, soup, meat with vegetables, etc. The rest of the time he cracks all sorts of things – juices, fruits, sandwiches, rolls. But sometimes we have fasting days when we only drink milk and eat fruit, for example.
Another exception is market. He is with us on Wednesdays since morning, so we try to go there, pick vegetables and fruits, look at sales rags. Sometimes there are pretty good things there. Accordingly, on this day the sea disappears in the morning. In compensation, there is a playground. Fortunately, all near the house.
The third key factor is weather. Today, for example, there was a thermonuclear heat! At 11 am in the shade it was already +37, and in the sun more than +45 (I just have a mark only up to 45). We ran to the sea by a shuttle, because it’s unrealistically hot, plus a warm wind. For the first time for the rest turned on the air conditioning at home.
On such days (and also, if there is a shower outside the window) we take time with games: reading books, modeling, designer, cars. On the floor there is a special puzzle mat made of foam plastic, like a tourist, and the table is wrapped in a cellophane package.
The rest of the rest flows smoothly. I finally found the perfect baby place for May-June. Water in the morning we have +28, after lunch (six in the evening) +32. Almost like a bath! What will happen in July – I do not know. And while we are looking at the map and we are thinking about where to go, what to see.
