Most of us either don't have a choice sometimes to leave our children with someone trustworthy or choose to take our children everywhere with us. Whatever the case, when going to the doctor's office, it can be daunting with your children with those wait times. Today was not exception. Two hours, yes, two hours was our total time in my doctor's office this morning. If I hadn't have brought colors, I might have lost it. I allowed my children to draw on the paper lined patient table in our room while we were waiting. I came up with little games like draw a square. Now draw a triangle on top of the square. Now a small rectangle at the bottom of the square, etc. Then they had to guess what it was. (a house) It was so much time waiting, I taught my 4 year old how to solve addition problems using dots + dots = answer then onto numbers. We made the best of it and had a great time together. So next time you are taking your children to the doctor's office, bring some colors.
