How to entertain a toddler…Posted: June 14, 2013
…with a baby on your lap.
Baby girl showed up in the early morning hours of her due date May 28th (punctual to a fault *grin*). She did manage to wait until Nerddad had been back from a business trip week across the country for a whole 60 hours 🙂
So what do we do now that mom’s trapped under the wee bebe all. the. time?
Lots of car races:
And letter hunts:
And even some of this:
And probably more of this than I’m willing to admit:
But we did manage to pull off an activity or two. I rolled some cotton balls in a flour/water/food coloring mix, and baked ’em to make BASHABLE COTTON BALLS (more detailed directions here).
(Yes, my crockpot has its own chair. What? It’s family!)
When I do this again, I’d probably use more water to make a thinner coating – these baked up as hard as little rocks! I would also not emphasize the word BASHABLE quite so much… I’m STILL hearing that one.
No buddy, baby sissy is NOT BASHABLE. Oy vey.
Fun times ahead, eh?
The gals at #iPPP are not all trapped under babies, and doing all sorts of neat summer things. Check ’em out!
