Vacations should be fun, and you shouldn’t be stuck in a hotel room the whole time you’re away. So consider hiring a babysitter to watch your little one, so that you could go out for dinner, run errands, or do whatever you want. Just have some alone time. There are lots of easy ways to find a sitter.
- For instance, if you’re staying at a large hotel, they may have a sitter on site or at least a sit of local sitters who they have pre-screened to watch your little ones.
- You can also turn to websites like Care.com or Sittercity.com. Those websites have also pre-screened sitters so you can rest assured that your little one will be safe in their hands. When you’re leaving your children with a sitter that you’ve never met before, you do want to make sure they have all the contact information they’ll need, just in case they need to reach you.
- So make sure they have your full name, phone number, and all of those details and if your child has a medical condition, an allergy, or any sensitivity, make sure they’re aware of that as well. So rest assured, there are ways that you can step away a little while you’re on vacation.
- Also, look for local drop-in centers. These can be at a mall or any convenient location in major cities where you can drop of your child for just an hour or two. It’s very important before you leave your child with anyone to let them know where you’re going. Communicate with them so they’re not unsure about where they are or when you’re coming back, especially when they’re in a new location.
Getting Into Sitting
She loves her sock and these toys. So I’m going to use them as motivation. I’m working on getting up to sitting. Myla can sit short periods as long as she’s protected by pillows around her. The next skill is going to be getting into sitting. So I use my own thighs to practice that. So I pick her up. I’m going to put her on her stomach over my thigh. Just to make it a little bit easier, I’m going to take that lovely sock as rude as that might be. I’m going to take her legs and spin her legs around, the farthest leg up toward me, using my forearm to hold her down her upper body so that I’m getting legs spinning but her top is staying still, so the sock? Is it the sock that might get you to go the rest of the way? Come on?
The rest of the way she says, “I am not having it!” How can it be so rude? Right here! Oh! There you are! I start off on my thigh and work progressively lower to I’m getting rotation. Oh Golly! I am so sorry. Then I am going to try to get her to come on up. The sock? Is it the sock that might get you to go the rest of the way? Come on?

Is it the sock that might get you to go the rest of the way? Come on? The rest of the way? She says, “I am not having it!” How can it be so rude? There you are! I start off on my thigh and work progressively lower to the skinnier and skinnier parts of my legs. I do both sides. So I’m not going to do that now, because I can see it would not be popular, but you spin her around. Bring that top leg up and towards you. Hold those legs down, and try to entice her to come up with the rest of her body, up the rest of the way. I hope that is a simple idea.
