Directions, Rainy Days, and Bubble Machines – Steve’s Daddy Tips (10-2-19)
Hi, I’m Steve and I’m a new Dad who has learned a lot of things over the last several months and I want to pass along some knowledge to you!
Each week I will be giving you some new tips for first-time parents and one spectacular Dad joke! So let's get to the tips!
- Today’s first Daddy Tip is one I have mentioned before, but I just had to use it again. Daycare workers are toddler whisperers, so don’t get discouraged when your little one follows their directions and not yours. Last week I picked up Charlotte and asked her to put back the book she was holding and she said no and wouldn’t let go, then her teacher Emily asked her the same question and with a smile, she returned the book. Huh?
- The next Daddy Tip is a tip on how to keep your toddler busy on a rainy day like today. Take them to the mall playground! Last weekend, Brittainy and I took Charlotte to the mall playground for the first time and she absolutely loved running around and playing with the other kids. It’s free, your kiddo can easily get all tired out and then you can strap them in the stroller and you still have some time to get some shopping done
- And the final Daddy Tip of the week is how you can kick up your bubble game to a 10! If your kid is as obsessed with bubbles as Charlotte, you need to get yourself a bubble machine. Why waste all that time and oxygen, blowing bubbles on your own when you can pump out a dozen bubbles per second. That’s right Charlotte. Bubbles... bubbles as far as the eye can see. You can get one for about 10 bucks and it is guaranteed to blow your kid's mind.
And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke!
Q: Why don’t the British mothers dress up for Halloween?
A: Because they are already mummies!
