Sorry, I wasn't able to finish my post last night.
Yes, sweetpeas, that's exactly what I'm talking about - I'd love to be able to take them on walks (like, right at this moment, it's gorgeous outside) but they get away from me. And being in the stroller is no treat for them.
We do have a portable fence enclosure so I took that outside & played with them together for a while. I blew bubbles, they loved that. Tried letting them "out" one at a time, but the one stuck "in" hated it.
Guess I'll just have to wait until dh comes home.
Another thing toddlers do is play in the kitchen, helping mom cook - how? Mine would make an incredible mess. I could control one, but not two. They do help me unload the dishwasher, which they enjoy.
I keep reading about letting toddlers this age explore in public - yeah, right! Letting them walk around in the store? No way!
