Keeping your toddler busy!

  • October 5, 2010 10:54 am

Some would say that keeping your almost-2-year-old busy is a challenge.  I say that it’s nearly impossible!  I will say that if I was not trying to work full time from home and entertain a busy little girl, it would probably be a bit easier.  In fact, I know it would be easier because on my days off, it’s not a problem at all.  But Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm, trying to work with Kira pushing books and magnadoodles and other things in my lap every five minutes begins to take its toll on my sanity.

Yesterday, out of desperation, I dragged out the pots and pans and spoons for the first time since Kira’s been born.  She has a great time banging away.  Today, I unrolled a long sheet of Christmas wrapping paper (upside down) and plopped her on top of it with a big box of crayons.

How long will this last?  Hopefully longer than it takes to write this short blog post!

In other cuteness, here’s Kira in her new dress and tights on Sunday.  She also had a coordinating denim jacket with purple trim, but the battery in my camera died right as I tried to snap the photo.  Sigh.

Just some Kira pictures…

She’s 18 months old now.  I can’t believe she’s been around for a year and a half already.  She’s so awesome – I could just watch her for hours.

Watching daddy mow the lawn

I think I'm pointing at daddy

Back from a walk, getting ready for supper

See my elephant?

Pretty sure I can get into this cabinet

Or maybe not

Mommy put all my toys away, but I found this box



Here’s a video clip of her trying to get into the cabinet.

You all have been asking for video so I have finally gotten around to putting something short together. I did not have much to work with as both myself and Melanie have not been recording much.

For those of you over in NZ please let me know how it runs. I aimed for a video that would run ok with a 150 Kb a sec download but I can lower it if needed.
