The other day I had to take a child to the dentist. To keep the 3 year old entertained while I was away, I gave each of the bigger kids the job of entertaining her for 20 minutes. Before I left, I laid out the parameters: active supervision of the child, fun activities such as games or stories or outside time.
When I got back home I learned that along with all the stuff I’d suggested, she’d also had the opportunity to do her March Madness basketball picks — compliments of her 16 year old brother. He said she loved it.
She likes San Diego, for those of you interested in such things. Apparently my 3 year old is.
