Mia's first time ever painting. She loved this activity SO much!
so much attitude because the paining fun had to end... ha ha!
headband c/o Emma's KlosetI'm really sorry to say that I've got nothin' for today's post! Mia is a very busy toddler, BUT I don't have to entertain her too much. She is great with independent play and spends a lot of her day in the back, playing with her outdoor toys. Plus I really try to fill our day with play dates, gym sessions (daycare), errands and park time. Unfortunately for us... that's all about to come to a crashing halt. Our winters can be MISERABLE. Snow and temperatures in the negatives, plus we are surrounded my mountains and get the worst winds from the canyons. Like I said, miserable! I'm really dreading being cooped up inside for the next 6 months! I'm hoping to plan a lot of play dates but I'm going to have to get creative with ideas to make our days fun, and to help us avoid the loony bin, if ya know what I'm sayin' ;) So I'm really looking forward to reading your posts and getting ideas!
I can tell you that Eric and I are getting Mia a toddler slide for her birthday, and a golf set and kitchen (if we can find one we love that doesn't break the bank... advice? I suck at online shopping, ha!) for Christmas that should help on the really bad days that are just too cold to venture outside. We also bought a little blow up pool that I've been saving to fill with ball pit balls, that will be a fun activity I can pull out a couple times a week for Mia! I'll have to get creative and craft, paint, let Mia help me bake, read lots of books, puzzles, etc. I try really hard to avoid turning on the TV (once in a blue moon is great, but I don't like to fill her day with shows) so I seriously need ideas to help me from turning to the TV for sanity this winter. I'd love to hear tips, advice and ideas from everyone else who isn't linking up!!
P.S. Emma's Kloset has been posting the most adorable "fallish" bows! Totally worth looking into!
