I’m sure everyone has seen or even had a difficult moment with a toddler where a deadline was looming and said toddler wanted hugs and your full attention.
This morning this is exactly what happened. Little Charlie was keen on getting hugs when I really needed to iron Marty’s shirt so he could go to work. As you can guess one can’t quickly, easily or even safely hold a toddler and iron.
So I dug deep searching for a little creativity and thought up a song to sing him to distract and make it possible.
This is what I came up with and once again the song worked.
“Iron iron iron the clothes,
Watch the crinkles go.
Watch watch watch along,
Watch and you will see.”
So my fun tip for the day (other than to be more organised) is to make things fun by singing songs.
“Sing sing sing a song,
Sing it happily
Sing sing sing along
Sing and you will see”
