I don't know about you, but I love Christmastime and tend to try and fit too much in during the 24 days before the big day. I have really grand intentions and rarely forget to do the "big" traditions like getting our Christmas tree or hosting my Annual Cookie Swap... but sometimes my littlest kids get lost in the shuffle.
In one class I took in college the teacher talked about making deposits in our relationship bank accounts with our kids. He mentioned that each positive interaction contributed to making the relationship stronger... but doing nothing actually depleted the relationship. I definitely need to make more positive deposits and strengthen my relationship with my 3-year-old!
This holiday season I am setting a goal to do something simple with my toddler each day during December that is fun, builds our relationship, and gets us in a festive mood!
We'll do crafts & learning activities, read books, and even do a few cooking projects. Every activity will be simple, have easy to get materials, and will be geared towards kids ages 2-4.
