Get Outside…seriously

I’ve learned that being a stay-at-home parent clearly has its benefits for you and your kid(s) but let’s be real..it can be the most stressful job in the entire world. Some days we do crafts, go to the park, grab lunch etc…and other days I’m lucky if we go down the hall to do laundry. Exhaustion, stress, anxiety and so on can make your average day feel like torture but what I’m realizing is that even if we just spend an hour on the patio blowing bubbles or watching him on his scooter..I feel better. There’s definitely something to be said about being out in the fresh air that maybe resets your mind and body, even if you don’t realize you need it. Although we go to a co-op school twice a week, I’m really trying to create positive experiences for him. Even if these experiences are super simple, like looking for bugs on a walk or watching airplanes fly near our house, I know it is good for the both of us. I constantly see kids on their own cell phones or tablets..which excuse me but I didn’t get a phone until I was 13 and it only allowed me to call three different people so it’s mind boggling, ANYWAY I really hope our generation of parenting can help reset things a little and let kids really experience being kids without just constantly relying on technology to entertain them for us.
