Weekends are for thinking and gardening and hanging out with family. I got thinking this weekend, and here's my first donation to the world of Lists...
I couldn't raise kids without... (okay, it's an exaggeration... I really really appreciate these things, but yes, I could make do it without some them...)
# My husband
# Our dog
How many tantrums have been interrupted then distracted from with the words "Oh!
Stop. Listen... what's the dog barking at?"
There just aren't enough words to describe how important grandparents are. I love watching our kids get to know their grandparents (and great-grandparents for that matter... lucky kids!). And I never could have guessed how deeply I love that my kids adore all their grandparents.
# Chalk and concrete or bricks
# A splashing tub, a hose, a sprinkler, and a tank of rainwater
# Television (oh, who needs a picture of television... and it is the one big reluctant inclusion in this list... but one that needed to be there for honesty sake... sometimes I just need to be able to follow a straight line of thought for more than a minute... and sometimes a rainy day just seems like it is giving me permission to let ABC for Kids do a bit of the educating...)
So, what things would be on your list?
