My son is not quite 2, but I love spending the day with him. We eat meals, we play games, we cuddle, we watch TV, we color, we do itsy-bitsy spider and patty cake. And we do chores, he pushes the laundry basket around for me, he helps me sort clothes, he helps push the clothes into the dryer. We run errands, we cook dinner. If I have things to do or places to go, he comes with me when at all possible and appropriate. Some days definitely drain me, but those days I let the housework slide or take a nap when he does. The way i figure, I can't get these days back, so I'd better make the most of them!
