Changing gears

It has come to my attention to repeated tussels with O that he and I are very different personalities. He is a quiet observer, I am a noisy social butterfly. I love doing and going, he loves staying in.

I am over-scheduling my 2-year-old. It is dumb, but true. Every day of the week, we have a morning activity, the library, art class, Cosi, the Zoo, the conservatory, blah, blah, blah. And each morning when it is time to leave the house, I am managing a tamtrum. The kid just wants to be at home with me. Can't blame him, I am F-U-N! But, I get B-O-R-E-D. But honestly, for a little peace, I need to be bored for awhile.

I determined this morning on my run that we don't need to go everywhere, every day. We are going to do one thing a week for awhile until he gets more excited about the other stuff. I am sure building castles out of blocks and play-doh princesses will be more than adequate. Did I mention I can make a mean play do princess???
