This is an invitations from another host (LJD3Tdance) to join a dare that's going on over at the 2004 Playroom. You don't have to be a member of the playroom to do the dare, so we are welcome to join in! It's similar to the Love Dare if you've ever read/heard of the book, but focused on your child(ren) instead of your spouse.

Maybe you're pregnant and looking for a way to make the soon to be big brother or sister feel special. Maybe you're just a stay at home mom looking for some extra activities to do. Maybe you're the working mom who feels she needs do do more with her kiddos. No matter what the situation we'd love to invite you to the care dare.
I think I get it (but maybe not, I've never read or heard about it and I can't seem to find any kind of explanation...), but I'm not really sure how to adapt dares to work for a baby still in the womb Plus I'm trying to focus on school while I still can... once Nova is out, I don't think I'll have any trouble focusing on her x)
The Love Dare is a book where you go through different activities to create a better/healthier bond with your spouse. The Care Dare is modeled after that, but the focus is on the child(ren) instead of the spouse.
It's easy to adapt for pregnancy. For instance, the first care dare is to increase reading time. If you don't already read to your baby in the womb, just pick up a book and read aloud. Dalton still loves the book I read to him while he was in the womb. Care Dare 2 is to create art to share with your child. If the child is old enough, they can make something with you, but otherwise (like in the case of pregnancy), you make something for your baby. Perhaps something you're hanging in the nursery, which I think some of you are already doing. #3 is caring for memories - making a scrapbook or writing a letter to your unborn child.
It can be done!
