Just wondering if anyone wanted to share tips for how to survive this with older kids around (and all the responsibilities that go with that)
My nausea is full time job in itself - if I ignore it or am too busy to deal with it, things get bad very quickly. If I stay on top of it I can manage okay - but my poor 3.5 yr old son is having a hard time with his usually energetic mama struggling.
Some things that we're trying
- more reading (but what is it about close personal space that makes me more nauseous!)
- more crafts, playdoh, painting (okay really it's just me throwing out a bunch of stuff and seeing if it's interesting!)
- dress up games seem to be fun right now
- I almost gave him a bowl of rice to experiment with, but the cleaning after didn't sound fun...
We're a t.v. "light" family - so I'm trying to keep that consistent, b/c DS's behaviour really deteriorates with too much t/v, so I'd like to keep him away from it if I can.
Anyone else finding some things to keep the older kids entertained?
