So, it’s almost that time of year – Summer! For our kids, Summer is a joyful time of freedom, fun, and festivities, however for us parents, Summer can be quite the opposite. Out goes the freedom of the school year, when kids are at school most of the day, engaged and entertained and usually coming home exhausted but happy. Now in comes those long days of kids at each other throats, sometimes literally in our house, desperate to play with you despite you still having to work and the age-old cry of “I’m bored”.
Your life definitely adapts over those weeks, from coffee dates, the chance to catch up on a bit of TV and even drinking a cup of coffee still warm, to chasing after the little ones, pleading with them to clean up after themselves and trying to figure out a way to entertain their inquisitive minds all day. Nobody is saying we don’t love our kids, it’s because we love them that makes us so concerned with making sure they are enjoying their day, but raising children can be a very busy job, and over those Summer holidays it can all become a bit overwhelming.
While we’re glad Summer break is only a few weeks a year, we still need a helping hand to get through it – at least most of us do. Thankfully, we have that helping hand in HMV. At HMV, you can find just about any kind of media you are looking for – whether that is CD, DVD, BluRay, or otherwise. You can also find any genre you want, so no matter your child’s age, you can find something appropriate. Plus when you use the great deals and discounts from Groupon you will save a great deal of money.
Now, when your kid is begging you for something to do, you’ll have a trick up your sleeve. Keep a new DVD or new CD on reserve for those moments where you just need to buy yourself (literally) an extra hour or two of chores time or just a chance to take a breather. Before you know it, the school bells will be ringing again and you’ll be wishing for your child to come home from school.
