All you moms out there. I need some advice on a number of things I need to get better at:
1) How can you successfully go grocery shopping with a three-year-old (I've been avoiding it, but want to start doing it so he does a good job and has fun too)?
2) Can you only paint your nails during naptime or when your child is in bed?
3) How can you distract your child (or entertain) in the kitchen when you do some extensive cooking?
(I don't want to promote too much TV watching.)
4) Can you get bills paid and do paperwork when your child is awake? What is a good activity for them to do while you do this?
In other words, I am in a transition, where I don't want to try to shove so much into time when he's sleeping or I need to go off on my own to do it. I want to involve him and/or plan activities for him to have fun doing while I'm doing my tasks too. I'm getting too tired trying to do it all in limited time and want to branch out on my thinking.
Thank you for any suggestions you have!
