To Entertain

This mom gig really gets difficult in new ways every day. Hermione is getting to the age where she really needs things to do. Like we really can’t just watch Elmo all day. I’ve been at a loss as what I should do. It’s seriously been one of the best ages ever though. She is such a crack up and she’s really starting to tell me when she doesn’t like something. She does this thing where she looks at me with a sour face and grunts. I can’t help but laugh and she gets so offended.

I want my house to be this beautiful creative space where she can play and learn and grow – you know, become the best version of herself. I’m trying to tell myself though that that happens organically and it will be a lot easier as she gets older. Until then I guess I’ll just have to suck it up and go on walks in the super crisp air. At least it’s not snowing yet.

She spilled an entire container of Cheerios the other day and I just let nature take its course.

But you can’t not love this face.

One thought on “To Entertain

  1. Playdates are a necessity at that age, even if just for mama’s sanity. Does your ward have a mommy and me get together? Even just inviting other mothers and kids over, rotating houses, helps a lot. Nursery will be a lot easier for you both when the time comes, too. 😉 Good Luck!
