I have a 13 month old DS who is looked after by DH in the day whilst I am at work (I work full time in the day, DH works evenings/weekends).
Apart from weekly swimming lessons, DS is yet to participate in any other scheduled weekly activities such as playgroups, etc. DH seems to be getting a bit restless with the SAHD routine and our DS is an only child so I think it’s a good time to start scheduling more outings and regular activities. I like the look of Gymbaroo and also think a play group would be a great start.
I'm interested to know what other parents are doing with their LO's of a similar age? Do you have activities/classes/groups that you attend? What kind of other outings do you find are great for this age?

My 13 month old DS does gymbaroo with my mum and it's great. My DD did it from a similar age for about 18 months and I think it did wonders for her motor skills.

DD (15mths) does - Rhymetime at the local library, Mother's group, playgroup, toddler gym at the PCYC, baby signing and swimming. I'm thinking about starting her at toddler jam (toddler dance/singing class). I like having one activity a day to keep us busy (but not TOO busy!).

DS and me get sick of being home all the time too! Sometimes it's nice to have a restful day at home, but not everyday.
We go to story and rhyme time at the library, playrgroup and he has just started staying in creche whilst I work out at gym for a short while I'd love to do swimming lessons but can't really afford it

We go to scheduled play group once or twice a week, I usually catch up with my mothers group on Thursdays and I'm about to start taking dd (14 months) to read and rhyme on Wednesday mornings because she loves books and is always handing them to me so I can read to her. She loves getting out and about, she has no siblings or family closer to her age and it's great socially for her to explore new things away from the house
