Today’s Works for Me Wednesday is the “Mom, I’m BORED!” edition. Thankfully, Joshua doesn’t know that word yet, but what he does say very often to mean “Mom, I’m BORED!” is “What can I do here?” That question drives me BONKERS. Although I often run down a laundry list of toys, games, and activities that he can do, the one that is always a sure cure-all for the boredsies is water play. Joshua loves to help “wash the dishes” (aka play with clean cups in the sink while I load the dishwasher), or float boats and anything else that will float in the bathroom sink. It wastes a little water from time to time, but he loves it and learns from it and it always gets him over the BORED hump. Plus, it’s something we can do together if I’m needing to spend some time in the kitchen. I realize this may not work for older kids, but right now it sure works for me!
