I like the ideas here, and I can't wait for DS to be old enough to participate in them more. Any ideas for husbands who can't think of anything else to do at the end of the day when it's too cold/dark/rainy to play outside with the baby? Something the family can do together (family = two adults and an 18 mo). Right now we mostly chase DS away from dangerous stuff and try to get him to eat healthy food and then put him to bed in the evenings. After that we're too exhausted to do anything but sit and stare at the boob tube. We like to listen to audiobooks in the car, but I don't know what we could do while listening after the little one is asleep (DH won't want to just sit and listen--we'd both end up playing on our smartphones, which is a whole 'nother problem in and of itself...)
Any other ideas for tired parents after the kids are in bed to unwind and get some down time without a screen?
