Nursing BoxMy sweet children are growing up way too fast...I'm thankful that the Lord gave me the opportunity to spend so much time with them. I job shared only 2 days a week when they were young and have worked at their school throughout their elementary ages. My daughter just moved on to middle school - - sniff, sniff. But my son is still with me at elementary. Anyway I have a tip for younger mom's with a baby and a toddler. When my son arrived I created a nursing box and whenever I was feeding him I would pull it down off the shelf and let her play with those special toys only when I was feeding him. When he was all done the nursing box went right back up in the nursery closet. She would get so excited and say, " Is it time to feed Josh yet?" It really helped so she was busy and felt special during that time. I don't still have the box I decorated for her ( it's been 10 years ) but here is an example...you could use a cute Easter basket, decorate a tub with cricut letters, etc. This is actually a babysitting basket my daughter made in girl scouts for when she babysits -- I just wanted to give you an example. :o)
