In my perfect parenting world, I would get ready for the day before my toddler was up.
As you might guess, though, that happens about once a week, if I’m extremely lucky.
And so on many days, Ella sits on my bed playing a few games on my iPhone while I take a very quick shower, throw on some clothing and pretend I know anything about doing my hair and makeup.
Over the last year or so, I’ve gotten quite a collection of free apps, and the new Winnie the Pooh Wonder and Wander app has been a definite hit in recent weeks (for Ella because it’s fun and for me because it is free!)
I also love how well-designed it is – the animations and illustrations aren’t gimmicky or overly childish, but instead have a really fun look to them. There is a good variety of games, including coloring, matching, puzzles, and music, all of which have plenty of options (not just the single free option and then everything else requires paid add-ons) and the music doesn’t make my ears want to bleed.
And, of course, I love five minutes to put on my mascara in peace.
