One day recently, I had been busy around the house while my Little Man happily played by himself (but near wherever I was working). Well, after several hours of paying only brief attention to him, it became clear that he needed me to spend some good quality time with him. He kept asking for play-doh, which is my least favorite thing to play, but sometimes it's good to be a "Yes-Mom".
I'm so glad I said "yes" that day. We had so much fun together, even if my OCD was in overdrive while he happily mixed play-doh colors. It was well worth it!
