OK wait!!! Does he have bee allergies?  If he does that can excuse not playing outside.  Take him to an indoor area to explore.  He needs to learn his world beyond home and daycare.  Libraries have story times for this age and do not get upset if the toddler decides to roam around room.

If you consider a pile of horse shit sexy....

Quoting Anonymous: Lol. That made me sound sexy ;)

Quoting ZombieMeat37: Don't listen to this hot mess.

Quoting Anonymous: Not at all. You're actually saving him from skin cancer.

How are you not wanting to jump out the window? My kids had so much energy we had to go do things or I would go crazy. Do you take them to indoor play places or anything? When mine were small we lived in Arizona and I hated being outside because of the heat. We spent a lot of time going to the indoor mall to play.

No. Not at all. But a little glistening sweat from the sun's heat and my hair all tousled - thats the hot mess I'm talking about. Lol.

So buy some bug spray and let him catch lightning bugs!

Quoting Anonymous: Ughh :( I feel so crappy. The daycare doesn't take them outside because of bee allergies and I don't get home till 8 :(

Quoting Texor:

Yes!  kids need sun and fresh air and room to run and climb!

Why don't you take him out to play? I really enjoy taking my three year old to the park. She makes it an exploring adventure. She never stops talking about everything she sees. She makes me appreciate nature much more than I could think of.
