Teaching Kids to Use Words but not be Tattle Tale
I am finding that it's really difficult to teach my children to tell me before…
Today is day 5 of what to do on Spring Break in New Hampshire and this is what we did …. having no boys until 2pm on this particular day my daughter and I enjoyed breakfast out at Country Kitchen.Of course, I can’t eat eggs but I went ahead and ordered a bagel with sausage and cheese on it. I ended up taking the egg out for fear it would make me sick. I love eggs so much but they don’t love me anymore. My daughter ordered a sampler plate, and honestly I wish I had to, it was yummy! She let me try a bite!
My daughter and I spent the morning having breakfast then ventured off to the local Pet and Aquarium center to have a look at the wonderful things the pet store offers. We saw fish, reptiles, birds and shown above is a pretend jelly fish decoration you can purchase for your tank. What a colorful experience and fun Mom daughter time.
After our fun filled Mom Daughter day it was time to pick up the boys at their Dads. Once we picked them up, we grabbed a snack for all three kids from my ex husband’s house for the kiddos and I took them to the park where they ran and ran and ran! It was such a beautiful day and I enjoyed seeing all three kids get along amazingly!
One part of our time at the park that really impressed me was that Aj now knows how to swing, all by himself! You see, Aj isn’t a risk taker and rarely will he swing on his own, he usually wants a tiny push here and there. This particular day he was proud of himself and showed off his swinging skills. I was beaming with happiness watching all three kids enjoy swinging together.
We ended our day with a relaxed moment of listening to my daughter practice her flute. I just love how well she is getting at playing her flute, it’s kind of neat that she chose to play flute because that is what I played for a couple years at school back in the day.
Another Spring Break day in New Hampshire came and went without much of any issues. I loved seeing all three kids love each other and be kind. This made another warm fuzzy day.
