  • I chase the baby around the house, it's his favorite game. I play girly games on the computer with my daughter. I just hang out and talk with my 15 yr old son. Trade a few punches with him he likes that.

  • Using a sheet to make a tent in the dining room. Just throw it over the table and let him play underneath. Use a towel and pin it on him like a cape so he can be superman or batman.

  • In an area of the house where he could run around a little, I would blow up a balloon 1/2 way and let it go. He'd then chase it as best he could, giggling all the time. After I get tired of blowing it up over and over, I'd leave it filled and let him bounce the balloon around. Very simple, It would entertain him forever. (Obvious i'm sure, but don't leave young kids unsupervised with balloons)

  • Well on most rainy days, I get my babies and we cuddle up in my bed and read books, or watch movies and on those days I always make something nice and warm like chili, or soup and grilled cheese =)
