The weather this week has been horrible. I know that our garden will be happy for the rain, but my two boys have not been nearly as pleased. Both Robby and Timmy have been going stir crazy being stuck inside for the past few days. Trust me, Timmy being bored with pent up energy always equals destruction! I would be a wealthy lady if I received a dollar for each time I said "no" over the past 48 hours.
effort to break up the day and allow our little guy to release some
energy, we decided to take him to his favorite indoor toddler
playground. As soon as we drove into the parking lot I realized that we
were not the only parents with the brilliant solution to curing a bored
toddler. The place was packed and toys were at a premium. I ended up
saying no and redirecting behavior more than at home. So much for that
With the indoor playground packed, we made our
visit short and headed home. I cranked up the toddler songs and Timmy
and I had a dance party in the living room. He was thrilled hopping and
swinging around wearing only his diaper. I'm sure that we were quite the
sight through the window, but for the first time in days he was happy
and active. I have to admit, I even had fun letting go and being silly.
I think we'll be having toddler dance parties more often.
