Have a lie-down & keep your kids amused at the same time!
Lie on the sofa. Give your children a selection of hairbrushes, combs and hair clips to play hairdressers on you! Or they can use a toy doctor’s set or substitute spoons to examine you.
You may get whacked in the face with a hairbrush, or poked in the tummy with a spoon, and it may all end up in a game of climb all over Mummy, but at least you get to lie down for a while. You may even be surprised how gentle a one or two year old can be when brushing your hair. (Give your hair a brush first to get all the knots out!)
I find playing hairdressers is usually more relaxing than playing doctors. My boys usually get out their toy drills and hammers to examine me when we play doctors, and end up cutting me open with their saws! It often turns into a game of ‘Evil Doctors’! Fun!
Written many years ago. My boys no longer play ‘Evil Doctors’, though my daughter still sometimes likes to do my hair!
