  • Never got bored there was always something to do, specially when I had 2 other ones running around.

  • Maybe start reading a good book, doing some crafts, puzzles, get an exercise routine going? Yoga? clean out some closets or something you haven't been able to get to in a while? Enjoy!

  • I took mine somewhere almost every day. We'd load up and go to Target or the mall and just walk around if I didn't have anything else planned. I was out and about daily with my oldest by the time she was 2 or 3 weeks old, and out and about daily with my twins by the time they were 5 or 6 weeks old.
