I really like these suggestions of things to do at home with your preschooler in the afternoon.
Preparing an afternoon snack
Visiting the library to borrow some books for the week
Playing a treasure hunt game and following clues that you have left around the house
Snuggling on the couch reading a book
Watching a movie together as a family
Playing in a park
Creating a playlist of ten favourite songs and then singing along together
Planning a dinner menu and setting a proper table for a sit-down meal
Planting a vegetable bed
Finding interesting specimens for a nature collection and identifying them
Collecting and pressing flowers
Visiting a building site and watching the machinery at work
Painting a fence or a wall, or exploring on a large piece of paper to create some family art
This is why ERF is important. I rest my case. #erf #extendedrearfacing #carseatsaftey some#LEARNIT!!!! It could save your child’s life. No one plans on getting into an accident. Please don’t let your child being another statistic.
Yeesh, that’s tough to look at.
a good reminder for me! sometimes I need reminders to keep me going on the right path with my decision, especially when people are all “but he’s 13 kgs already, you could turn him around,” but I reckon he’s still needs to be rear facing even if he’s heavy. he still has the muscle development, bones, ligaments, and tendons of a one year old, so his neck is still weak.
Our Playcentre organized a trip to the local fire station. Ari loved it and even gave the firefighter a high five when he was dressed up in the full gear. They like to do this so the kids learn that they are not scary and so they won’t run away from the firefighters in a fire emergency.
A few mums were swooning. Men in uniform and all that. So you pretty much know which way they would be running.
this is ari feeding the calf.
I am typing this through tears because the hubs reformatted the mini laptop and I think he accidentally erased a bunch of photos including some newborn Ari ones and some of our former cat in Berlin. I am mega sad but trying not to get crazy about it until he comes home and has a proper search for them.
i have limited skillz and times like this make me feel so helpless.
I am trying to meditate on the cute cow pix and not go completely bananas about it.
What is up with me accidentally posting everything twice
How am I doing this?
Ari and I would like to stay in bed today. Oh rainy days.
Day 2 of the hubs at university. our morning ritual of cuddles in bed while ari sucks on an empty bottle has begun.
Despite whining a lot yesterday morning I actually kicked its ass. By 9 a.m. I had cleaned the bathroom, had bread in the oven, put in a load of washing, and had fed the baby breakfast. Total mom brag but i was straight up killing it.
Not sure about today though. Think we’ll just stay here.
