Aloha Friday - #12
Aloha Everyone! In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Can you believe we made it to Friday? We survived the week, so to celebrate let's sit back and relax. No heavy mental lifting today... just one simple little question...
Do you look to books on parenting? Or for activities to do with your kids? (want to share a title or tip?)
Okay, so a little later posting this than usual. This was prompted by an email from a friend who is home with her child for the summer and wanted ideas for what to do. I was a little surprised. My kids are a part of my day.
My day includes chores around the house, caring for the chickens, gardening and cooking/baking. I think those are all great life skills for my kids to learn. They also have time to play, but for most of the day my toddler loves to help me. It hadn't even occured to me to look for suggestions in a book... or that I needed to come up with activities for them.
So, I am now curious if I have been missing the "parental boat" here. Do you get your ideas from a book? Okay, if you want more Aloha Friday fun, go to An Island Life and check out the other posts on the Linky. Have a great weekend!
