I went to court today to get more time with my son (before it was one or two supervised visits during the week, plus every other Sunday supervised - now I get one or two unsupervised visits during the week, plus every other Saturday overnight unsupervised). No, it's not a lot of time, but we go back in September to hopefully make it more even (provided my ex thinks the visits aren't a bust).
My first overnight is next weekend (not the one coming up, the one after) and we're going away with my family... but two weeks after that will be an actual visit at my house.
Now... I know mostly what my son likes to do and some things that he likes to eat (his dad doesn't like to tell me much). But I need some general ideas for pretty much everything:
-activities he and I can do together (I have some ideas of things that cost money, but free would be good too... like games we can play at home, etc)
-crafts we can make
-foods I can introduce to him
-and ESPECIALLY ways to help him learn - something his dad is not really into
I don't have any toys at my house yet (because our visits have been at my parent's house for the last 6 months or so) but I work at Toys R Us and will get some with my discount. His dad doesn't take him to do much, because they live in a smaller city and his dad doesn't drive right now. That's why I need ideas. I live in a bigger city and my roommate has a car, so the possiblities seem endless. :)
Thanks in advance
