  • Since my husband works weekends, I'm alone during the weekends. I usually leave her in her play pen and put Barney on. LOL. I can't really leave her on my bed since she is 10 months and crawls so I don't want her falling off the bed either. But she loves Barney and doesn't pay attention to anything else.

  • i shower at night after they're both in bed. they both just follow me in the bathroom when i brush my teeth, and then i'll brush my 3 year old's teeth while i'm at it.

  • put them in the bathroom with you with some toys. Put baby locks on the toilet and cabinets. The old days there where play-pens, they worked great.

  • DH works 12:30 to 8:30, so I generally get a shower before he leaves for work.

  • SHower: She plays on the floor of the bathroom. Brushing my teeth: She "brushes" hers either in my arms or on the floor.

  • when she naps, and I have showered when she was in her bath ring in tub with me after her bath(she is toddler) but she is not to fond of this, so it has to be a quickie for me and we have only tired it a couple of times, did this days when she will just not nap, and she is too old for playpen, and is into everything and a recent monkey like climber, so I can not trust her alone in any room, unless she is asleep when I am in shower

    but i noticed right after becoming a mom, i get less showers in
    I used to wonder what my sister was talking about when she said, "all I want to do is get a shower in today"
    I thought she was odd, but now that I am a mom, I know exactly what she was talking about

  • I usually take a shower after she goes to bed or during her nap. I never go father than the kitchen(where I can see the living room fully) or laundry room(which is also connected) if she's playing on the floor so If I need to use the bathroom or brush my teeth or anything somewhere else, I put her in her playpen for a minute. She usually gets mad and screams but it's only for a minute or two.
