I know lots of moms out there have really fantastic and educational activities to do with their children, especially during these long winters days when we’re stuck inside. (I don’t actually know any moms like this, but I’m certain you exist. And that you have perky boobs and no backfat. Good for you. Hmph.)
Well some of us (read: ME) are not so good at coming up with fun things to do with our kids. I racked and racked my brain yesterday, but the best I could come up with was, “just go play
and leave me alone with the Internet, CARSON.” Poor kid.
Luckily my little man was able to entertain himself. You just KNOW he doesn’t actually have any toys (not) and had to play with the toilet plunger I bought and haven’t used yet (gross, I’m not THAT bad of a mom)…
And what kid doesn’t love vacuum attachments…
He tried to figure out how to make the DVD player work since his mean mommy was trying to catch up on All My Children (Yay! Greenlee is back and Angie and Jesse who died waaaay back in the 80′s!!) (Look, there’s only so much Thomas I can take. It was MY turn to watch the TV, okay?)
So what do you DO with your children? Anything more enriching than letting your kids watch “educational programming” like Thomas and All My Children?
