I like to balance our time between her play and mine.
Play is so important because it is her world. She is the expert. In a world where she is always being taught, it is a place where she can be the teacher. It instills confidence in her and it never fails to teach this Super Mommy a thing or too ;)
Equally important to this Super Mommy are those precious opportunities to teach Miss Add through the everyday. Whether it is cooking dinner or grocery shopping, engaging Miss Add in the everyday tasks of making her meals creates life skills that will serve her well in life-- all while giving us that precious quality time.
I am so thankful that my mama took the time to teach and really talk to me growing up. I learned early on that my thoughts mattered and were truly valued. I also learned the skills of cooking a home cooked meal and the work ethic of life on the farm by her side.
I grew up in the microwave generation and while this mama loves her microwave, this shift in technology caused many in my generation to not be taught the same cooking skills as our predecessors.
I want to make sure my Add has the best of both worlds... the skill and knowledge of all that today has to offer with a firm foundation of the basics and the confidence to use both-- all over a nice cup of playdoh tea with mama and Gilbert.
