Sometimes as a parent, this internet stuff makes me feel like a crappy knock-off version of a parent. You know, like the RC cola version to the Coke or Pepsi, what with all of the activities and Pinterest-ing ideas to stimulate and keep your children creatively thinking for 24 hours a day. Am I wrong in thinking that it seems like neglect if you aren't constantly occupying and entertaining children?
Frankly, it's a helluva lot of pressure.
it's a rainy day here in Cincinnati, and that to me totally justifies a lazy day, on all fronts... including parenting. I mean, is it all bad for kids to just play in their pajamas, in the comfort of their own environment, while it's pouring buckets outside? Is it so bad, to let them have some much needed "time off"? Sometimes it's nice to just snuggle up with a Mickey Mouse episode and hoards of toys. Sometimes it's okay to move slow, and what a better day to teach these lessons than on a rainy day.
I mean, there are people out there who actually prefer RC Cola, right?
