5 Indoor Activities That Keep My Little One Happy

Finding the Fun in Parenting

“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and – SNAP – the job’s a game!”

- Mary Poppins

With a 2-year-old and a 5-month-old, things get a little crazy from time to time, and there are definitely days where this feels like the hardest job in the world…actually, I think it really just might be. But, lately I’ve been working on reframing things and changing my perspective and looking for the elements of fun to be found in parenting.
