When I heard the Toledo Museum of Art was giving tours for babies, I was tempted to roll my eyes. A 2-month-old? At an art museum? Do 2-month-olds even know what art is? Do they even care?
But the more I thought about it, the more sense it made. I was that mother who walked her baby daughter through the store and described everything. I got more than a few strange looks for babbling away at a baby in a carrier who was too young to even pick her head up, but talking to her was the best (and only) way she was going to learn language.
The truth is, there are a lot of things you can -- and should -- be doing with your baby from day one that might sound a little surprising.
Do you do everything on the list? What else have you found yourself doing with your baby that you never would have thought of before kids?
