This is going to be short: My girls are begging me to go swim (in our plastic baby pool outside).
So we’re going to go outside. Wearing our swimsuits and sunscreen not-quite-rubbed-in. Carrying trail mix and bottles of water (the reusable kind).
We’ll pass the morning under the shade of a big colorful umbrella…until we get too hot and come inside for lunch.
After we eat, I’ll rock-sing-sway until my 1-year-old falls asleep and my 3-year-old will wait excitedly at her door: “Is she asleep? Can I watch a movie from the library…but not the one with the bad lady?” (A few days ago, we watched The Rescuers…and it was a bit too much for her. She asked me to fast-forward past all of the scenes with the bad lady and then told me she wanted to take it back to the library).
I’ll say, “Yes” and lift her up so she can choose from the library movies that are sitting on the top shelf of our bookcase. We’ll settle in our brown leather couch and eat white cheddar popcorn…and she’ll want to sit super close to me.
And there won’t be much time for blogging.
How much TV does your child watch (if any) and how do you decide what movies/shows to let him/her watch? Also – do you have a swimming pool?
