If you are
a working mom a mom you know about worry.
I don’t even mean the big worries.
I mean the worries that you get at night, when the house is quiet and you have two minutes to think.
You know what I mean?
1) Was a good mom today?
2) Did I listen enough?
3) Was I patient enough?
4) Did I teach my kiddo anything?
5) Did we spend QUALITY time together?
6) Did we play?
Well, I had one of those nights last week and did some surfing on the net for quick activities to do with my kiddo after work. You see, I keep feeling like I make dinner, we eat, she gets a bath and then she goes to bed. I know that that isn’t really reality but it bothers me so here is my solution for right now.
I found a great site (counting-on-me.blogspot.com) with 101 activities to do with your toddler. I loved them. These are the sort of ideas that take no or almost no supplies, are quick (great for short attention spans) and are friendly for a very tired mommy.
I picked up a package of wide popsicle sticks from the dollar store,
and I started to write.
I’ve got them in a big glass on my kitchen island right next to the snack jar.
Now maybe I can get some sleep.
