Quoted: 0 Post(s) I've decided to be a teeny tiny bit leniant on what "No T.V." means after reading the post below. DD have never watched cable T.V. but we have had to wean her down from about 5-6 shows/week (1/2 hour each). There are a few shows she really and truly enjoys - mostly Baby Einstein or Tiny Love Magiq and occasionally Diego. So, I figure 1-2 shows a week is okay for now. That seems to have become our 'new groove.'

We have, however, introduced a lot more stories on CD when she asks for a show or we do a dance party! : I wish I was more crafty but I can't seem to get my stuff together to organize a 'craft' for a 2 y.o. that doesn't result in a disaster! LOL

Anyone else out there in a similar boat? I love all the advice I've received on here!!

Crafts have always been disastrous for me. It took me a while to realize that I like buying and organizing and planning craft stuff, but I really didn't like doing it. We paint a lot, and the kids color and draw but that's it and that is fine.

Sports like swimming, soccer and basket ball--both organized games teams and just playing, as well as bike riding, hiking and just running around in the garden are our saving graces. Kids are outdoor animals, my dad always said, and now I know why.

My kids are older though.

I'd much rather gather blankets, snacks and a huge stack of books and read for an hour or two to my kids than do a craft!

Happy mom to DS2000, DS2002, DD2004, DS2006 and DS 10/2009:
