  • Can you have a playdate at your house w/ other moms? Some like myself are always dying to get out of the house. I also live in California so I do not know how extreme the weather is where you are. If other moms in your community can come to your home and you don't mind consider hosting a playdate 1-2x a month.

  • I don't entertain my kids. Not even the baby. He's almost 8 months. I talk to him and hold him when he gets fussy but most of the day he's crawling around exploring the house, pulling DVDs off the shelf (his favorite activity), pulling up on my leg that I hold out for him. He has this tunnel thing he likes to crawl through and a box of toys that he plays with (he has no figured out how to dump it out to get to what he wants). Right now he's napping (has been for a couple hours). Then he'll get a bottle, diaper change and will probably pull all the DVDs down again and jabber at me. He's a very happy baby. There's nothing to do outside here.
