Sometimes, other moms say to me, "How do you always have activities set up for your child?" The answer is, I don't! I sooooo don't. In fact, one day I was feeling particularly uninspired. Kz was WHINY. And I mean, WHINY. I remember thinking about setting up an activity for him but the truth is, I was exhausted. I just wanted to sit on the couch. So, after some futile attempts at choosing toys for Kz to play with, I just took the whole basket out and plopped it down. "Here. Go nuts."
He was stunned at first. "Ummm, Mom? Are you sure?"
A few moments went by and he checked again, "Are you REALLY sure?"
And so, I watched a good solid half hour of Bravo TV (my vice) and this seemingly uninspired gesture turned out to be exactly what the doctor ordered for us both.
