A glass of good (but still budget friendly!) wine. . .
A snack. . . .those are smores Goldfish for anyone who might have been wondering. . . .
An age appropriate toy or activity which takes enough time to put together/complete for the wine and snack to be consumed in a slow and satisfactory manner. . . .
And a child to go along with the age appropriate toy.
During one particularly rainy afternoon at the beach last week, I managed to squeeze about an hour and a half out of that Lego toy and convinced Tyler that putting that set together while Mommy enjoyed a beverage and snack was a great rainy day activity.
So, while he did this:
I snacked and drank.
DISCLAIMER: The glass of wine and snack mentioned earlier were for ME to consume, not the kid. I do not advocate giving underage minors glasses of wine. No matter what the weather is outside. And the snack? I never mentioned there being an age appropriate requirement on those. Yes, I ate Goldfish. . .don't judge me. Or do, if you must. They were good. Real good. Especially with that glass of wine!
