    Swimming lessons (Monday), parks, cafes for morning tea, out for lunch, shopping, play dates, tiny tots dancing (Thursday), umm...think that about covers our week. Two year olds are fun to do stuff with I think

    Here's a list of stuff I do with my 2 year old DD, in no particular order, indoors/outdoors/planned/random/paid activity/scheduled and so on..
    *Wednesdays and Friday mornings- library time. They have a toddler story/song time, free of cost.
    *Tuesday mornings- playgroup and indoor playcentre
    *regular walks to the park
    *Outdoor water play now it's warming up; I put her blackboard in the backyard and give her paintbrushes and containers of water to dip them in and she "paints" the board....the fence....the cat...
    *Craft- I save all my magazines and cut out any pic that might appeal to her; animal photos, food pictures, babies etc and add them to her collection of things to paste on paper with clag- I have a container of little knick knacks like sequins, pom poms, feathers, coloured sticks, beads etc.

    When it comes to doing the household chores, she "helps" me. I bought her a little broom which she pushes around while I vacuum (she BEGGED for it, I'm in no way enslaving her, lol) and when it comes time for dishes, I set her up on the tiles beside me with her little toddler table with a couple of large plastic bowls filled with warm soapy water and give her a bottle brush and sponge and some clean dishes to wash- spoons, cups etc.


    Oh! And ABC for kids is fantastic

    Wow guys. Way to go awesome mums.

    Our life has been nothing but intervention and therapies.

    So with ds#1 and 2 both in school next year im hoping to give her a fun little existence! With no big brothers whinging the second we leave the house!

    I only have DS home two days a week and one day we do toddler yoga and music and the other day library rhyme time and toddler cooking class at the farmers market. We have a small apartment so I have to be out and about!
