I was a mom of a 4 year old and an infant. I was tired. My 4 year old had long since given up her nap and my baby was a great napper – during the day. Did I mention how tired I was?
One day after Baby was down for a nap, I gave my 4 year old a box of washable markers and I stripped down to my undies. I grabbed a pillow and lay on the floor and we played Tattoo Parlor. She covered my entire back (legs and arms too) with a work of art and I got a much needed 20 minute nap. It washed off with no problem.
I love it. Other possibilities:
- Hair salon: You sit in a comfy chair while your kid brushes your hair
- Massage Parlor: You lie on the floor while your kid give you a backrub
- Pet store: You're a sleepy doggy your kid gets to "pet"
- Mummy: You lie on the floor, the kids wrap you in a sheet, you occasionally make scary noises but otherwise remain motionless
