I’m obviously not stimulating my baby enough. I haven’t made up any new songs for him today or read him any Shakespeare. He did get to play with his interactive toys, designed by educational professionals and child psychologists to best stimulate his growing mind. But I did not play with his toys with him, I did not encourage him in his exploration or point out the next step of play in his development. Nope, I plopped him down in front of the TV, turned on Nogin, and let him play.
I read two whole chapters of my novel uninterrupted.
Subsequently, I’ve been banned from the local Mommy and Me playgroup. Damnit, those were my best drinking buddies.
