I'm just curious to see what other Moms are doing to keep their kiddos occupied during the day.I have been feeling like I have been falling back on the same old activities day after day. I sometimes struggle to be "on" all day. My LO only naps for 20 minutes to an hour once a day and will not tolerate the bouncer for longer than 10-15 minutes so I get a little worn out.
I usually let her play independently and walk around with her baby carriage a few times a day.I put on music for us to sing and play to once a day. I try to read with her a few times and as she is weaning we have 3 meals a day and 2 snack times. I also get her out of the house for walks or shopping trips several times a week with one trip to the library story time.
I have to admit lately I have had the TV on in the background to keep me sane..My LO doesn't watch it but I feel like I need to know what is going on in the outside world. I feel a little guilty about that.
