21 Days Of Summer Fun With Your Baby Toddler
Day 2: Go For A Walk
It’s time to break out the sunscreen and hats. We’re taking this thing outside. On today’s edition of 21 Days Of Baby-Toddler Summer Fun we are going for a walk.
Proper outside attire
Flask (for you, wink wink)
Today’s fun is brought to you by the birds and the bee’s.
Not those birds and bees, but real, live, wild life. This is great for little exploring eye’s and ears, and perfect bonding time for you and your little miniature. It’s also a great way to get some Vitamin D, because let’s face it, you’re probably not getting a lot of that these days. If you are, it’s probably left you with a nice farmers tan, because who has time to sit out and enjoy the sun. Not you.
To prepare for your little tiny adventure, you can choose to go around the block, or down the street to the nearest park. If you’re feeling adventurous, throw a dart at google maps and head for the nearest greenery.
Be sure to lather the sunblock on your baby tot. Lather it on real good because we don’t need Karen from across the street telling you about the dangerous effects of UV rays. Forget yourself, because well, that’s what you do.
Pack a few snacks and some H20 for the toddler, and some Mike’s Hard for yourself. Wine, whickey, vodka, or limo-o-rita will work too! It’s all about preference. Don’t forget your phone because you’re definitely going to want to put this on social media, (hide the flask. Sacto-mommy is lurking)
If you’re still a little groggy because you haven’t had time to drink your fill of coffee, and you’re still in your LuLaRoe mushroom leggings, chug that caffeine and throw on your outside pants, or shorts if you dare. Wipe your face with a baby wipe and get out there.
Release Your Toddler
Let your toddler roam, stroller free, and watch lovingly as your tiny tot tries to suck down a rock and enjoy nature. Let them get dirty, play in the mud, chew on leaves, and chase after birds. Get your smarty on by pointing at things and naming them. Stick with simple categories like tree, sky, bird, flower, leaf. No need to get all Wild Kratts technical with the Yellow Back Horn Bill’s and Sapphire Willows, or whatever.
What To Expect
Your kid is probably going to fall a few times, so try to look up from your phone every once in awhile to make sure your baby tots is not face down in a dirt pile. You know what, bring some band-aids while your at it, you know, so your prepared or something.
After your walk, you may have to give your kid a good wipe down, or possibly a bath – if your second wind is hitting hard enough. Hopefully you get some great pictures out of it and have some fun one on one time with your little explorer. Enjoy that vitamin D, you sexy thing you!
