My son is having a 24 hour ambulatory EEG today. They attached a bunch of electrodes to his head, wrapped it up, attached a pack to his back (I actually rigged up a belt to hold it and its working much better) and then there is a 2 ft cord that is attached to another pack (too heavy for him) that I need to carry. So I am attached to my active 2.5yo til 10am tomorrow. Ugh!<br><br>
Just got him down for a nap, so I have a little while to rest up until the afternoon. I always thought I was pretty attached to him as it was (always in the same room etc) but not being able to run to the kitchen for a drink, grab a snack, etc while he is playing is tough!<br><br>
So since he has already had 2 Dora's (his favorite show) do any of you mommas have any ideas on what we can do this afternoon and tomorrow morning - attached together - without relying on too much TV (of which he will bore of quickly anyway)? I need fun creative stuff, since we have already tired of simple coloring.<br><br>
I have some finger paints I have been saving for a rainy day, but I worry about how messy that is, since I cant give him a bath til tomorrow. I am also thinking we can go on a walk this evening. Help!<br><br>
Thanks!<br>

Have you tried Play Doh yet? Ds really likes it a lot. He also likes to help me cook. Maybe you can make something that you can work on together for dinner, like pizza?

I bet that you two could draw some pretty fun pictures of Mama and Ben connected together with crayons. Then you could use string for the tubes and glue them in place.<br><br>
Hope you find some fun today and that everything is okay for Ben!<br><br>

Wow, I'm probably pretty late responding to this so I just want to know how things went. I mean, as toddlers they do get heavy during the day and even slinging them is hard. They are so independent and want to get down and run and play and do their own thing. I can't imagine having Madyson on me constantly at 3 years old and her standing for that!!!! She'd freak out!<br>
