Keep kids happy with pregnant mom

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

I already posted in the parenting forum, but thought that I might get some good ideas here, too!

 

I am pregnant (32 weeks) and not very well, therefor I need to keep my kids busy without me doing a lot and being able to lift my legs up a bit. The kids used to be very screen reduced, they were allowed one tv show for about 30 min per week. Now, in my situation, they have significantly more screen time, playing "educational" games and watching one show per day. I don´t think that this is really ideal, but I don´t really know what to do with them otherwise. 

 

Especially my three year old is very, very active, bouncing around like ... well ... a three year old love.gif, screen time keeps him glued to the screen, afterwards he is not very well behaved and not very balanced though. 

 

I am not very creative at the moment, even story reading is difficult, as I cannot breath that well. (I have a severe cold at the moment, on top of everything) I do read some stories though. 

 

Any suggestions? What did you do in my situation? 

(There is noone of family or friends able to cover, at the moment, I do have help, but they are worthless with the kids, so I let them do household stuff...) 

 

thanks!
