How Not to Go Crazy During the Lazy Days of Summer

Ah, the lazy days of summer…turn out to be not so lazy when you have a toddler who insists on being entertained all. the. time. Blaire and Molly have ideas for keeping your kids busy when school is out--while also not going out of your mind.

Beach days. Pool days. Soccer camp. River days. Creek days. (Pick your preferred body of water, is what we're saying.) Are you exhausted yet? When the lazy days of summer start, we may feel pressure to entertain our toddlers every day. But that's not possible, since we're mere mortals. Molly and Blaire share their ideas for staying active with your kids during the summer months without getting overwhelmed.

In this episode, Molly and Blaire discuss:
