The struggles I’ve had with Littlest this year have seemed tremendous. He’s into everything, and exceedingly perturbed that I would dare to put an end to his escapades. But in spite of his perspective of a “restricted childhood,” he’s gotten to participate in some things I didn’t dare try with my other two at this age. Like coloring and writing with crayons and pencils, and fingerpainting!
I’ve also found that pom-poms are a real winner with him. The more activities I can find with pom-poms the better I’ll be. The other day, he played contentedly for about half an hour with pom-poms, cupcake liners, and my cupcake tin. (Oh, the bliss!)
Another winner was pushing pom-poms into a whiffle ball. Any other good pom-pom games? We’re on a roll. (Just wait until I give him pom-poms and a paper bag! I’ll be #1 Mom, for sure.)
