What sorts of things keep your LO happy and busy? As in, toys & activities. What can I get her to do that doesn't involve a television or me having to do much ... or clean much? Its not that I don't want to play with her but I'm pretty exhausted by the end of the day and physically playing with her can be too much. I'm all for just sitting there talking to her while she does something.
Its getting to be pretty darn near intolerably hot outside so my go to activity of chilling on the back porch while T messes around outside is quickly becoming obsolete. New toys keep her happy for like 24 hours max. I rotate her toys every so often so that old toys become new toys. Her glow worm that she hasn't seen in awhile has been keeping her occupied for the past 12 hours or so. She likes puzzles & books & stacking blocks but those things get me maybe 30 minutes of happy toddler.
