Schedules, Bubble Baths, and Parks – Steve’s Daddy Tips (8-14-19)
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 for all of the parents who are getting ready for their morning schedule to change now that summer is ending. If your morning routine is about to shift dramatically, be sure to start slowly changing your morning schedule to get ready for the fall. Charlotte’s hours are going to be changing a little bit starting in September and we have been slowly changing her bedtime to a bit earlier each night so she isn’t shocked when she has to go to bed and wake up earlier in a month.
- The next Daddy Tip is to give your kids a little change of scenery from time to time. Charlotte and I go to the park by our house almost every day and she really enjoys it, but she is slowly losing interest in it. So, over the weekend Britt and I found the coolest park we could within 30 minutes of our house and took her there and oh man did she loves it! It was one of those parks that has the huge wooden castle looking play areas with all sorts of hidden rooms and tons of slides. Even I was having a blast playing there. So, switch it up and find a few new places to take your little one before the Summer is over.
- And the final Daddy Tip of the week is to take bubble baths with your little one! My wife has been taking a bubble bath with Charlotte every once in a while and that girl thinks it’s the best time ever! She loves playing with the bubbles, splashing Britt, and just having some company in the tub! Just be ready for spaz out moments from excitement and the occasional pinch or poke under the bubbles. Ouch Charlotte!
And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke!
