Jedi-mom Trick #41

Oh yeah, I have a second child!🤪⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today’s Jedi-mom Trick is about exercising equality in the house.⁣

Most of my days involve entertaining my eldest child with activities, books and games specific to him. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We are constantly doing stuff together, but his baby brother? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Well… he’s always THERE but not really included in our activities. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today I got reminded that toddlers and babies benefit from focused, intentional 1-on-1 play with their parents too! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Now I try to find space in my day to spend 1-on-1 time with the baby too. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
According the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are SO MANY benefits to a child’s development including promoting their social-emotional, cognitive, language, and self-regulation skills.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When reading that, I admitted to myself that I could be better. 🙋🏾‍♀️⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I now try to dedicate special playtime for the baby and I (to my eldest child’s horror 😱😭) #siblingrivalry ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But he matters too. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see you, my giggly little prince.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And I love you too. ⁣⁣

❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔❔⁣⁣
Is it just me? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Are you guilty of giving the eldest siblings more attention than the baby? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Also… if you have any BABY games I can play with a 1.5 year old, please share! 😍 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thanks in advance. ⁣⁣
