Keeping Liam occupied is a full-time gig on top of all my other motherly duties ... like caring for an 8-month-old, cleaning, paying bills, cooking. I snicker when I hear people say, "Oh, just put on a movie, or let him play with his toys." I wish. My kid requires new things every day to keep it interesting. He's always on the prowl for something new to talk about, explore and deconstruct. Playing with cars only lasts for so long, people. The kid is complicated. To that end, I've been trying to come up with new activities that don't require money. Our latest thing is cutting up magazines so he can glue the objects onto paper. TOTALLY FREE! It kept him busy for an hour yesterday.
Anyone have any other ideas for my imaginative boy?
