Cuddle Time, Chores, and Board Games – Steve’s Daddy Tips (9-22-21)
This week, Steve's Daddy Tips are all about different ways you can spend time with your kiddo.
- This week’s first Daddy Tip is to take advantage of spending extra time with your toddler when they are sick. Charlotte isn’t a huge fiddler, but when she is sick, she is all about it. So when she caught a cold over the weekend, my wife and I were jumping at the chance to get extra cuddle time with our little girl. It sucked that she was sick, but caring for her and getting that extra time with her when she was calm and cuddly was really nice for us.
- The next Daddy Tip is to make chores into a game so your little one will want to do them with you. Let’s face it, there is only so much time in the day so sometimes you aren’t able to get all your chores done and spend quality fun time with your kiddo. So, when you have things to do like watering the plants, doing the dishes, or cleaning up toys, make it into a game to entice your little one to play along and help. Charlotte doesn’t like doing chores, but if you call it a game, she jumps right in and starts to help.
- And the final Daddy Tip is for parents who have been wondering at what age to start playing board games with your kids. Charlotte is going to be turning 4 in December and I have been waiting to finally be able to play board games with her. Well, that waiting has finally ended because we played our first board game together and it was amazing! We got to play Pretty Pretty Princess, and even though I looked fabulous in all of my jewelry, she beat me in her first ever complete board game! So, parents, the correct age to try to play board games with your kid is 3 years and 9 months.
And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke!
