Your hands are busily trying to finish dinner without burning it, it’s the baby’s fussy time, the phone is ringing, you have a long list of to-do’s, and your mind is occupied with all of these things, while your other kiddos whine that there is “nothing to doooooo.” After a couple of rejected suggestions you may find yourself saying, “I don’t know…just do something!”
Does this scenario sound familiar? It may or may not be a composite of personal experience. 😉
In times like these, it’s all too easy to fall back on the TV as a time-filler/ baby-sitter. And while good movies and fun veggie-tales episodes have their place, I don’t want my children to fill all their waking hours with screens. I’m guessing you don’t either.
When things are a leeetle chaotic, it’s hard for mama to get creative, (although sometimes it does happen!) but times like that do inspire me to come up with a plan, though, like a list of things for the kids to do when they have nothing to do.
