What is your quick, go-to mental thought when you need a quick pick-me-up? Recently this has been playing in my head; “Soft kitty, Warm kitty, Little ball of fur; Happy kitty, Sleepy kitty, Purr purr purr.” Ah, Sheldon, how I adore you.

Scrolling through the many wonderful ideas linked up in last weeks’ Kids Co-op made me smile too. It’s not just the creative ideas and stories that impressed me, it’s the generosity of so many people willing to share their stories of how they work, rest and play with their children.

There are some old-school ideas that have stood the test of time.
