I should really be doing some paperwork today but hey I have time to write a quick post! Today is my catch up day, I need to finish my monthly planning get my new routines underway and finish off the chores for today otherwise dirty clothes for the rest of the week!
I put on Netflix for Dustin because when you're 19 months old Curious George is where it's at! I moved my laptop to the dining room table so I can keep an eye on him and my plan was to get some paperwork done because it's the start of a new week at the store today. Turns out he is more interested in helping me do some paperwork then watching his show so I had to figure out how to make it work, the art of multi-tasking with a toddler! Give him a pen and an old notebook and he's happy!
It is one of those moments that you have to find a solution that works for both of you and don't get discouraged because things don't go as planned. Really, can you control a toddler?! Not usually, they have minds of their own and don't really understand the concept of “I don't need your help”.
What do you do with your toddler or kids to keep them busy when you really don't need their help? I'd love to hear from you!
