My son loves my attention. He is so happy when I just sit with him on the floor and play and interact with him. I am quite happy to do this but there are a few times in the day that I just can't sit there with him. While cooking dinner is one of those times. I bring him in the kitchen with lots of toys and things to do but he still cries and tries to climb my leg the whole time I am cooking. I try not to make it take too long and I do lots of the prep work while he is sleeping but he seems to have trouble with even 2 minutes at a time. He isn't like this at other times in the day that I have chores which take my attention away for a few minutes. I do realize that this is his cranky time but I am hoping that someone might have a few suggestions for me. I hate hearing him cry but we have to eat early because we generally put him to bed by 6:30pm. Any suggestions and support would be great. Thanks!
