I found myself trying to write a post for today and ever time I sat down, one of the kids needed my attention, the dog wanted out or I couldn’t think of a thing to write due to the fact that my brain was fried. All I can think of is lunch menus and running routines. So I went for a run!
Anything that can hold my daughter’s attention longer than 5 minutes has my attention too. I don’t know about you but my daughter tries to do everything she can get her hand on in a 30 minute span. Blocks. Dolls. TV. Dancing. Spilling Cheerios in the chair. Move the dog toys 6 times. Books.
I love that there are so many products on the market to entertain kids. However, I hate how you have to purchase them all individually and they can be so bloody expensive. If you spend the money and your kids hate it, you’re sometimes out $100.
I was picking up my daughter from daycare one afternoon. It had been a particularly challenging day at work. Emotions flying high. Discomfort. All I wanted to do was sit on my butt for 20 minutes, but I knew I had to go home and get dinner started and tidy from the night before and laundry needed to be put away before bedtime.
My daughter and her best friend were in a very giggly mood, which tends to rub off on me. It was the same today. They made me smile but that acted as more encouragement for them to continue to be kids and be happy and goofy.
Time came to get in the car seat.
Remember all those apples that I was raving about? Well, they have taken on a new delicious form – APPLE SAUCE.
If you are pregnant (lets say for example you’re 6 months), make sure you have help. You could become extremely tired, sore and possibly cranky while trying to do everything yourself. Just saying I know someone that happened too!
Let’s get down to business.
