Family time ahead!

I started the laundry at 5am and soon will be off to stock up on groceries and back to finish the laundry and start cleaning the house. Why? My son, DIL and granddaughter are arriving tomorrow and will stay 2 nights before heading over to our local son and DIL's for 2 nights. We will join them for New Year's Day to view the Rose Parade and have some more visiting. Such a treat!

It is supposed to be raining all day Monday and an active 3 year old needs to keep busy. Yesterday when I was at the library I picked up a few children's books but there aren't any children's activities scheduled because of the holidays. We have some card games and coloring supplies. Baking, hide and seek or what?

IDEAS for indoor entertainment for a 3 year old please!

We are also squeezing in going to see "Little Women" this afternoon as the reviews are very positive. Hubby was surprised to think that he had never read the book until I pointed out that it wouldn't have been on his radar as a boy with no sisters in the 1950's and early 1960's! Hopefully going to the movie won't be like when I got him to go to a send up of The Nutcracker not realizing he had never seen the real ballet! Not very funny under those circumstances.

Enjoy the end of the year and see you on the other side.

  1. You've got great plans for the end of the year. Family and the Rose Bowl, doesn't get much better than that. Happy New Year's.

  2. My sympathies go with your husband ... altho' I have heard that this Greta Gerwig version of Little Women is supposed to be good. B might even get me to go see it!

  3. What great plans for the end of the decade. It has been too long since I had to entertain that age group, but playing with playdoh seems to strike a cord.

    God bless.

    1. Yes, we have been reminiscing about homemade aydoh, table forts, paper airplanes and so on. Enough ideas I think and she does come with parents lol. We do want to be the fun and creative grandparents.

  4. Three year old's have non stop energy, so my suggestion would be to find an indoor play area, and pronto, or be prepared to be exhausted. And a walk in the rain with umbrellas would also be a great way to expend her energy, plus she'll probably love it, and all the slimy creatures she's likely to find on the sidewalks. 😊

  5. My three year old grandson loves baths...so it's good to have bath toys and bubble bath. In mid-December, he stayed overnight (for a total of 26 hours) and had three baths!
