The best babysitter for my very moody two-year old is not a human being. It is not the TV, nor any of his toys. The best babysitter ever is something I cannot go out and buy for a few bucks at the store.
My son has been going through his terrible two’s lately and he has been a little tougher to deal with. His attention span is at a negative on most days, and he is really starting to show his independence.The last few days our neighbor has been putting on a new roof and a new lawn in their yard. They had their entire lawn ripped up and they are out laying a new one as we speak.
The big truck and the tractor. My son has been glued to the front window and/or the door for two days. “Mommy, tractor, big red truck, come see!” All day long.
It has been nice as I have been able to a lot of things around the house, like blog post, dishes, dusting, pay bills, etc. without having too much disturbance. I do this all within viewing distance of him.
Now if I could just get my daughter into all day school things would be a lot calmer around here. 2.5 hour Kindergarten is a joke. She is ready to be in school all day. As much as I thought otherwise in the beginning of the year, I am ready for her to be too!
I love my kids for then anything in this world. Sometimes it is nice to have a quiet break. Not too long of a break because then you miss them too much, but a few hours here and there is priceless.
