My four year old, Nathan, is very unique. He LOVES puzzles. Not just loves them, but has an unreal knack for them. Seriously, he does 500 piece puzzles, by himself, in a day. Granted, it takes him a few days when he tries it for the first time, but by the time he takes his second try at it, it doesn’t take him more than a few hours. Crazy.
Anyway. The point here isn’t about his puzzle skills (although they are a little bit unreal), but it’s about spending time with him. Owning my own business, I obviously have a lot of work to get done. Not just in the kitchen, but on the computer. Lucky for me, my son’s interest and my need for time to get work done can fit together like a puzzle. Like that pun, there?
Nathan is never more thrilled than when I set up shop next to him working on his puzzle. He says to me, “Mommy, let’s work together. You work on your computer and I’ll work on my puzzle. It’ll be cute.” And to that I say, “Yes, little sir.”
I just love working from home at this little guy’s side. How can you incorporate your kids into your to-do list today?
