ok so Bear is only sleeping for with Mum is what i say...Bear slept from 6:30pm to 6:30am last night woohoo

So will be happy with what i get and i'm giving up worrying about it...

Thanks to all you lovely ladies who have sent love and support via comments, helps muchly

Am using the dear old DVD's at the moment...Bear likes Play School again at the moment so happy about more "Can We Fix It" was getting on my nerves as a certain someone in the Square will know only too well c:-)

Bear is going back to daycare on mondays as of next week and Grandmas on will get me time then...think that i will invest in some good paints/crayons etc so can get Bear to draw paint/make mess.

That's the ticket!

Playdoh is good too under supervision.
Another good trick is to get some stickers and line them up along table edge (like sticky tape) and let Bear take them from there and stick them onto paper. Noah loves this one and keeps him still for about ten mins.
We are off to BTB show either today or tomoz - GROAN. :(

Thanks Nat..yes sounds like a great idea..Bear likes stickers

Hey do you have a recpie for playdoh?

Jen said...

Yes - stickers are good.

A two inch brush and a big bucket of water to go and paint the path, house fence, etc. Keeps them amused for ages if you have a secure area you can leave him.

hope all goes well with it - nothing worse then tired cranky toddlers, cept two of them!!
