What Type of Midterm Mum are you?

It is mid-terms and the children have a week or a few days off from school. What type of Mid-term Mum are you?

  • Take it easy Mum – This is time for them to recharge and relax, let the children stay at home. They can wake up when they want, go to bed when they want. They need to relax and take time off from the grind of going to school everyday. Their mid term activity is no activity.
  • Hangout Mum – This is the time to hang out with friends and cousins, it is hard to squeeze in enough play-dates during the school year. So now they will go and visit Kumbi on the other side of town and some friends from their old school. Mid-term days are full of planning playdates and on who is coming over.
  • Always got to be learning MumThe children are booked at a mid-term camp! Let them go and hang out and mix with children from other schools. Probably pick up other skills from the camp like arts and craft, sewing, cooking, chess, robotics, build an app etc.
  • Lesson Teacher Mum – Time to call in the lesson teacher to “coach” the children. Time to brush up on weak areas or any area that needs refining before the second half of the term and exams rolls around. There is nothing wrong with them being ahead of the class.
  • Get out of Lagos Now Mum – the Mum who has booked the departure flight for the same night mid-term break begins. Always ready to get out of Lagos with the children the moment she gets.
  • Fun seeking Mum – Time for fun, to visit places around Lagos like the Lekki Conservatory, Ikeja City Mall. Time to go out eating at  Johnny Rockets, or to get pizza. There are lots to do and so many movies to see. A movie and activity is selected for everyday till the midterm is over.
  • Cultural Mum – With no school to disturb the day the children will wake up early everyday and make breakfast for the whole family, do laundry, do the grocery shopping and all the other domestic work possible.
  • Career focused Mum – this is a great time for the children to gain some work experience, so off to an internship already hand picked. One week is enough to learn some necessary office skills and get exposure to a career. Thinking of maybe becoming  a doctor? off to Dr Marian’s clinic for the week.
  • Daycare Mum – Turns the house into daycare, asks everyone to drop the children over at her house. Loves to entertain children and keep them busy with fun things to do. Time to bake banana muffins with smarties toppings!
