Truthful Thursday: Social Honesty Starts With You #truthfulthursday

I had to write this Facebook update yesterday because I caught wind of Caleb playing with a highlighter last night and I felt a little sorry for him. This actually happened. He was dragging around a mini frying pan that he stole from the dishwasher and a yellow highlighter and was acting like he was the king of the world.

And I felt SO BAD!

My other two kids had a full schedule folks! I’m talking Gymboree, music class, Mommy and Me at the local church, weekly play dates at the park, mornings at Starbucks with other babies. All week long. Caleb? Poor Caleb sifts around the living room looking for scrap metal and bobby pins and relies on his creativity for 12 hours a day.

Third kids…. those poor, poor third kids!

He doesn’t even have a lot of toys. Not in comparison to the other two. I need to step it up. Eyes are OPEN folks! They are OPEN. I’m going to VTECH and LEAPFROG him like nobody’s business this weekend. Oh, it’s happening! Heck… it’s already happened (in my mind).

Now it’s your turn to share your Truthful Thursday story —

I feel you, I was always on the run with the older kids. But I too realized I need to stop going at a rapid pace, savor the moments of playtime. It important for all involved #TruthfulThursday

I used to be a pre-school teacher and all of my youngest children were the most laid back, creative kids because of these exact reasons.

I used to take classes on how kids who are allowed free play end up being the most intelligent so Caleb is lucky that he's allowed time to explore and get creative:)

Great parenting! :)

Lol! I feel the same way, but he'll probably be better off for it. Good choice with Leapfrog, though. I'm convinced the toys and videos are responsible for my kids learning their letters and numbers. (Hmm, maybe my truth should be that my kids watch too much tv.)
