I have a 15-month old daughter, and I have organized a couple of playgroups that meet once a week for an hour, but as she gets more and more active and requires more and more socialization, I'm finding it very hard to meet her needs like I did before. There just don't seem to be many options out there, so I end up taking her to practically every park I can find before and after her nap. I live in a 2-bedroom condo and it's just the two of us, so she gets bored after like 30 minutes in the morning and I have finally had to rely on turning the TV on for her just to give me a chance to shower and make her breakfast. She just seems so bored. The only options it seems are daycare or a nanny, and I have been touring daycares in the area and I'm just not comfortable with any that I've seen so far, and a nanny wouldn't really help with the problem of getting her more socialized... does anyone have any suggestions? Do most stay-at-home moms just go to the zoo and library and parks for a whole year?? It's very boring...
