I'm realizing in my 18 months of experience as a parent that I am doing a few things that I said I would never do. Example: My child will sit nicely at restaurants and eat his food without a smart phone or tablet. HAHAHA, please laugh out loud with me at this statement! Guess how we get to go out to eat. Asher sits in a high chair with the portal DVD player (on mute) watching paw patrol. But he does eat and he isn't screaming that he wants to get down. It's not ideal but at least you don't have to hear my child having a meltdown. Another one that I see on facebook alot is parents giving their children Christmas presents early. I never understood until today.
After 2 straight days of a pounding migraine and vomitting every 2 hours, I am finally feeling better and am able to actually function like a person. This morning when I woke up and felt better I was so joyed! So joyed that I completley over did it. I ran around the house this morning trying to get everything accomplished that I could not get done for the past 2 days. I then felt awful! I felt like I got hit my a truck and new I was going to crash. Well there is no crashing today when it's just you and little man. My husband is at work, so I have no other option but to function.
We have been cleaning out Asher's playroom for the past month. Gathering his smaller baby toys and putting them away for when the baby comes, boxing up items to take down to the beach house, and trying to make room for when Christmas explodes down there. I noticed Asher is becoming "bored" with his toys. Usually on my days off I try to do an activity or take Asher on an adventure. Well neither of those were getting accomplished today.
I went to my last resort. I needed a new toy that would entertain Asher and I could still be involved, while I wasn't feeling the best. Asher really does not understand Santa yet. Which worked wonderfully in my favor! Santa brough Asher the Paw Patroller & all the pups with their vehicles this morning! A new toy to keep him occupied and I could still be involved playing with the pup figurines on the floor with him!
Before kids I didn't understand at all! Now that I have a child of my own and am pregnant and extremely ill with this pregnancy, I totally get it! I rather give him a new toy then stick him in front of the TV yet again.
I was able to do a few fun seasonal activites with Asher recently that I would love to share! Hoping I feel well enough to get these activites posted before the Holiday is over!
