On Mondays I am not usually a very good or effective parent. After staying up Saturday and Sunday nights I am tired and lack much patience. Luckily Chris has a flexible schedule and, at least this semester, is around on Mondays to be the lead parent.
A lot of Mondays after I wake up and Michael gets home from school we try to get out of the house and go DO SOMETHING. Today we took the boys to Wheaton Regional Park which has tons of room to run, playgrounds to climb and play on and, in the summer, they have a small train you can take rides on (does it get any better?!?).
