I'm just not sure what to do. My ds is SO active. He can't stand to be restrained in any way (car seat, high chair, stroller, and to a lesser extent sling) and has a very short attention span. The only way I can get dinner made is to put him in his chair and hand him one toy after another. The only way I can keep him from crying when driving is to hand him one toy after another. I feel like we're both getting stressed and schitzophrenic and I don't want him (and me) to be so upset all the time. He doesn't like toys, and nor do I--he likes being outdoors and around people. But my town is so boring. There's nothing to do. I played with him in the grass the other day and he loved it, but I couldn't keep him from eating every leaf and pine needle he came across so I had to pick him up. So I find myself going to the grocery store for "fun." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I don't want to keep going on like this, but I'm at a loss about what to do with him every day and how to get chores done without the constant stream of toys that he care nothing about. I feel totally stressed out and I know he's feeling it too. Any ideas?
