Ben and I have distinctly different parenting styles when it comes to entertaining the kids. When he’s on his own with them he likes to go out on long adventures, forgoing naps if necessary.
On the other hand if I’m solo parenting for 48 hours, I can handle a short excursion and then I need to hunker down at home and recover.
On this particular weekend alone with the boys it was rainy and so we decided to playdough it up with laminated lego people. It was a fun, simple activity that allowed me to sit for a bit while the boys were occupied. Sitting is probably one of the hardest things to find time to do when I’m on my own with them.
The rest of the day was bubble baths and reading!
