Let’s face it. Being a parent is often a boring thankless job. Too often you are doing activities your kids want to do instead of what you want to, or your listening to complaints because you are making them do something they don’t want to. It can be hard to have time to have some fun or relax yourself.
Luckily, there are things you can do to have fun while you parent. Some of these idea are more practical than others, but they all have one thing in common: not letting having to parent get in the way of having a little fun. Check out these creative ideas!
