Things to do

Sometimes you just get burned out.

If I were to schedule all of Liam's activities that are needed to enhance, entertain or encourage movement and activity for him, I would have a packed day.

And ideally, I should do this.

But life gets in the way.

I have other children to entertain, encourage and enhance with homeschooling, sports and family time.

So, some activities get left of the 'to do' list.

I can have objects right in front of me and not even see them or use them for him in months.

Take for instance his wedge:

I haven't put him on it in ages.

Generally, he won't hold his head up for very long in it anyway.

But, I got it out this past week and have been putting him in it again. Really it's just for something different to do.

But I found out that if I put Liam in it and ask him if he wants me to sing to him, he gets all grinny faced like he does when he's excited and he holds his head up high.

It's hilarious.

I will sing his favorites, 'The Itsy Bisty Spider' and 'Wheels on the Bus' and I have his undivided attention and head control for the entire time.

I guess I'll put it back on the list for a while. : )
