So I was thinking today that there has to be an upside to this whole parenting and SPD kiddo….and I realized it’s all the stuff. Don’t get me wrong, there is lots of it, and many a thing I don’t own yet. Plus the cost, we have paid for everything out of pocket, save for the therapy things my son gets as gifts.
But I was thinking this is how I have managed to get through a winter with small kiddos…all of the stuff.
You see we live near Chicago, cold and snowy and my SPD kiddo doesn’t like to play in the snow or cold.
So once the Christmas decor is taken down, so goes the dining room table. Out come the mats and some equipment. The trampoline gets used multiple times a day. I also have a child-sized exercise ball that my non-SPD 2 year old loves to roll on. We also have playdough handy. We also have a bean box. We can also put a tunnel out to crawl though. I also allow (moderate) running and crashing into my couches.
So there . There is an upside
