“Holiday soon! God help us all!
Binding document for my son to sign!
Feel free to copy if you’re trying to prevent video game/tablet addiction this holiday!
I will type this up and he shall sign. Infact a little winchy part of me is hoping he breaks the rules so I can just pack them all up! ?
Im also rationing snacks this holiday! We will pack up treat packs for each day! If you like eat all your snacks before 9am, if you like save it to last the whole day! Your call!
I’m fully on OPERATION PRESERVE MY SANITY!
PS: Before I’m bombarded with ideas for summer holiday activities, we have those sorted thank you very much. ?”
