Wow is all I can say!

As a new mom, I am constantly thinking of projects or activities that I can do with my son as soon as he is old enough. I know I'm a little early since he is only 7 months old and is really only interested in putting everything in his mouth but with all the great ideas out there I am starting my mental archive now!

I love the idea of helping my son find his creative side by offering him new activities and projects to do while we are home together. I have made a promise to myself that I will not let the television entertain him all day long. Besides isn't it my job as his mother to create wonderful childhood memories?

So having said all that, I recently ran across Homemaking Fun and again wow is all I can say! What a devoted mother to create a theme for story time including games, food and activities.

I was especially impressed with her Dr. Seuss day in celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday on Tuesday. The Curious George story time was pretty darn cute too. As a monkey lover, I must do this with my son one day!

What a wonderful way to celebrate motherhood and your children everyday. Kudos and thanks for the inspiration!

Here is a picture of my little monkey and I when he was just a few months old. Please excuse the no make up, rolled outta bed, Sunday morning look. This is one inspired mommy!

  3. Great post, Debbie! I'm like you...always thinking of ways to bring out Ian's creative side. Ian watches an hour of TV a week at most...and it shows. You're not the only one who doesn't want to use the TV as a babysitter! I read the other day that the average parent interacts with their child one on one for approx. 10 minutes a day. It blows my mind. They're missing out on so much!
