I have a 3 yo DD and 6 month old DS and need help figuring out how to get dinner made. I have to make it before DH is home from work or we are eating too late. I have been letting DD watch a DVD while I make it and DS plays in his exersaucer. That works okay, but now DD is dropping her nap and I want to let her watch a DVD after lunch because that is the only way for her to get any quiet/rest/sitting still time. I don't want to have her watching a DVD twice a day, so I need a new idea for keeping her busy during dinner time. Sometimes she'll help me a little, but often doesn't want to or I need to do things that she can't really help with because they involve sharp knives or the hot stove. Any ideas?
