HAPPINESS IS A HAPPY KID AT HOME

doing our summer.. right way!

Needless to say, I have been like all other working moms we know around us- super busy since the summer break started. There is a constant need to keep the kids busy since its scorching hot outside and just so mundane in the house. It’s a different story if you have a separate play area for the kid or even a younger/older sibling to keep company and sadly I have none!!
I often have to think of various new activities to keep D busy.

Step1: Firstly, was to make him count all his piggy bank coins and lay them out in 1’s 2’s 5’s and 10’s …

I was down with my chums and just needed to apply a cucumber pack on my face, switch on the a.c to the lowest and dose off! but with this wonder kid around I could hardly wink my eyes, forget getting some rest or a nap :(

Step 2: Ask the little active brain to count if he can to find the sum of all the stacks of 10 coins each he has made.

Step 3: give him a paper and crayons much in advance — before application of the cucumber pack– to write or draw what he wanted to buy from all his savings !! My little one drew something so pretty and abstract that I needed him to describe it all to me. 😀

Step 4: doze off next to the toddler while he is super busy at work and won’t disturb the mommy in pain

Step 5: the toddler often dozes off next to you cuddled up

Step 6: wake up; refreshed ! And help count again and see the sum amount… add a few coins to finish it off in a round figure.

Step 7: Ask the kiddo to handover the wishlist ! this is always the most exciting part! :)

Step 8: GO to the supermarket with him and buy whatever he wants from the racks … healthy , unhealthy, packaged or raw, even if it’s something he already owns!

Step 9: let him pay in change. watch him be super happy… slip in some cash bills to the counter guy if they amount exceeds their savings

Step 10: let the kiddo carry it all home all by himself ! see the joy of unpacking, try click a few pics and pass it on the dad or family group.
