On Saturdays mornings I like to get up with X and let Sarah have a bit of a lie-in. Taking care of a toddler 5 days a week is tiring, and the break is necessary to recharge her batteries. Xavier and I have been working on our list of lie-in morning activities.
Things to do when Mom is having a lie-in:
- Go to the park.
- Colour quietly.
- Read books.
- Catch up on the latest kids drama (Sesame Street)
- Make Mom breakfast in bed.
- Silently clean the house.
On those mornings when the lie-in lasts a little longer — eg. we’ve gone out, come back, and eaten Mom’s breakie for lunch — we hit the bottom of that list and start looking for other things. One can only be a good influence for so long…
This morning we learned the Djembe.
