For the last 6-7 months Miss S and I have spent every Saturday morning together #MotherDaughterSaturday. The mister has had his MBA group meetings every Saturday which meant I was on solo parent duty. I think back on the last 7 months and I am thankful we got to spend so much alone time together, but of course it didn’t come without some parenting stress.
Looking to the future, I think I may be a little more SELFISH when it comes to my Saturday mornings with my fambam: brunch out or a lazy morning of pancakes at home, doing something fun together or just lying in bed in our PJs, getting some work done around the house #HoneyDoList or running errands at the market.
So as the Hubz Saturday meetings come to an end, I thought I’d put out a little reminder to myself of the things Miss S and I did to spend time together (while we anxiously waited for our man to get home!)
Park Sesh: The park is my best friend (and she loves the park too). We’ve been going in the best of weather and even the colder fall days #ThankYouSnowPants
Art and Crafts: Thanks to the dollar store I have tons of toddler friendly art/craft supplies. Currently she’s into the “gue” stick (glue stick), playdoh and water/water colour painting (by far my fav). I love when she is doing something creative because being creative is very important to me. But also because it’s more or less and independent activity (ok, she ate playdoh ONCE…that I know of) and it lets her focus on her art work but also fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Plus she creates some BEAUTIFUL masterpieces!!
Library Visit: Another thing we both love is the library. There are different toys, puzzles, kids and new activities (see Miss S on the “coputer”) and of course books! Plus the new library by our house has a big open kid space with activity centers so it helps get out some toddler energy!
