Literally the first word Ben speaks in the morning: WALK!
At breakfast, lunch, and dinner: WALK!
When we leave the house to get in the car: WALK!
While I'm getting him dressed for the day: WALK!
As soon as we get home from a walk: WALK!
Some mothers have to listen their toddlers say "no" all day long. My son says "walk". Usually we go on one walk a day, which I feel is pretty good. We stop by the park and play a while and then continue on home. But I hate the heat and humidity that a central Illinois summer brings and I'm afraid Ben might be a little disappointed when his mom wants to spend 10am-7pm indoors.
So I'm wondering what your plans are for beating the summer heat? Do you have tips on cheap entry prices for swimming pools? How do you fill the long days of June, July, and August with toddlers but little sweat and screen time? Is that even possible?
