I have a bearly 5year old and a nearly 2year old, both gorgeous boys :) my oldest in in p1 but when he is at school i struggle to keep my youngest occupied. i dont like them watching to much tv but sometimes its so easy to put him infront of it so i can get things done. he follows me around wanting lifted or just totaly wrecks the place. Any ideas on how i can keep him occupied while i do the housework, cooking etc.. thanks so much :)

I have a 2 1/2yo daughter and a 5 month old son. My daughter drives me crazy during the day. She also follows me everywhere or just sits by her toy box and throw toys all over the floor. I found getting her to 'help' me with the housework helps a lot. If I'm vacuuming I give her the dustbuster and she 'vacuums' too or if I'm cooking I let her pour in the ingr or stir. It takes twice as long to do anything but it keeps her happy and we get to spend time together while getting housework done.

It might help to have a really great toy that he only gets to play with when his brother's at school.
