I often consider myself the ‘worst teacher mom’ ever. I play with my little guy, but not that much. We read together daily; usually only one book. I don’t sit down and formally teach him anything, and we watch way too much TV.
“At the old house”, as he refers to it, he had multi-generational options. Here in the new house, it’s just me. And unfortunately I still have to work even though we’re stuck at home. It sucks. I don’t want to put him through 11 more days of half paying attention to him. I’ve done this to him before (lockdown last spring 😭), I’ve done it to him way too often for the short time he’s been earth-side. He deserves better of me. So I’ve got to do better. My little guy is way too smart, perceptive and loving for me to be so reckless with our time and interaction.
A visual schedule with specific times for us to have intentional time together will help us both, I’m sure. I’ve been putting off creating one for the little guy since summer, so better late than never. 🤷🏾♀️
Counting my blessings. Ase!
