11 summer activities that you will regret, of course
So you think you're going to have a little fun spending the summer activities, but in reality you're just setting the view for a night of rejoicing. And it doesn't count children.
You are not to blame. Having fun in the sun is a lot of hipe and noise! It rhymes, even. You can't fight the power of rhyme, you're just humans.
But beware. Some of the "fun" that summer promises is actually a disappointment wrapped in an amusement park coupon you received at a grocery store. On the other hand, you can't sit here all day! So you could also try all this summer entertainment, but don't be ready. Read these important reminders before you go. Either these warnings are heeded, or they are surprised by the mistake of 'backyard camping'.
1. Entry movies
In essence, they can only occur outdoors when it is dark enough and dark enough when your children have reached the limits of absolute patience. Guess what they don’t feel at 9:45? Double function with mosquito bite side.
As soon as it's warm enough to spend the night outside in a sloppy hut held by bent poles and cloth that smells like it's been in a damp basement for the last 12 months (because it has!). It's also warm enough for 57 chewing insect species to eat on your face during sleep. Camping is the equivalent of the Zika virus.
Just admit that you like hotels; there is no shame in it. Because "glitter" means you can insert Troop Beverly Hills blu-ray rental camper multimedia center, but you will still have to put dirt if you want to go to a camp shop where you can find chocolate bars and solar blocks.
The only thing annoying than impatient kids is to put together sticky s’more, a reminder to them not to put flaming marshmallows on each other and OMG your hair is on fire!
It’s 4pm and if you’re not leaving now to get a good place for the wonder of evening pyrotechnics, you’ll probably be watching it with your eyes closed.
6. County fair
Or call it an area dishonest. No matter how well you plan to buy travel tickets, you will never be able to use them starting a cycle where you try to buy extra ticket packages ($ 5 for $ 3 or $ 12 for $ 5 or $ 9 million for $ 230) because children all have direct so much to drive on another trip. This scenario recently left one Ohio family at their local fairs for seven days in a row before finally saying to their children, "Screw, we are now a Carney nation."
7. Temporary hair color mixed with a drink
You told your little girl that she could put a flick of color in her hair, but only for the summer. If you let her, be prepared that the resulting color will not be what you expected. Bottom line: Kool Aid hair color works, but not always the way you want and for much, much longer than you would like.
8. Small league baseball
Make sure your mom falls. Your child thinks she'll catch an invalid ball, and you know she'll go home crying because she didn't.
9. Blowing bubbles
It's not that a day spent blowing rainbows is a bad thing, it's that your child will spill all the bubble soap before he even dips the wand in the bottle.
10. Flying a dragon
If you are on the beach, go for it! Skip it wherever you are in a tree or tall shrub. Kites are how trees dress for summer.
11. Children's films
If you have more than one kid, you will disagree about which mediocre animated movie viewers to see. Don't worry if you forget to add salt to your $ 50 popcorn, the kid's tears, who wanted to see another movie, are delicious enough.
There you have it, the summer frustration that at first seemed like a good idea. Look, I'm not saying you shouldn't try to entertain your kids this summer, I'm just saying that's what's for backyard hoses, Netflix and Pokemon GO.
