School term has ended to make way for the hot summer months here. To be exact, 66 days more until the bus stops in front of our building to take the little one to school again.
Since we have no out-of-Dubai vacation in our schedules this year, it’s that time of the year to plan out what to do to keep her from being bored.
- Going to the Park – nah, too hot!!
- Going to the Malls – Noo, too cold!!
- Staying inside the house – Yikes, too boring!!
So, what’s left to do?
We need to get one of each three above, like going to the park after the sun sets. It’s still bright at 7 pm anyway. I despise going outside even if it’s night, though. Sometimes it’s hard to breathe with the humidity!!
Go to the malls on weekends but bring a light jacket for P and headache tablets for me. Believe me, these people here don’t have a single idea what is happening to the environment with the freezing a/c setting they implement. Sometimes I wonder if Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates has left its doors open as the temperature inside the whole mall is almost the same as the -1 setting inside the man-made ski resort!
Stay inside the house and do lots of playing and reading books, building Lego blocks, watch cooking in the kitchen, one kid-friendly DVD per day and some music videos. Play I-Spy in the computer for 30 minutes, get longer bath times.
Momsters out there, how do you keep the little tot busy on school holidays?
