Later in the week my wonderful wife, ‘V’, is taking a trip to visit family in the UK. I’m going to be home alone with the boys for 9 days, the longest period I’ve had them alone so far.
I’m both looking forward to and dreading (a little) the week and am determined to attempt to make the most of it rather than see it as something just to ‘get through’. As a result – I’m making a bit of a list of things I want to do with the boys over that 9 day period.
The boys are almost 2 and almost 4 so can be a bit of a juggling act in terms of day time sleeps, tantrums and hyperactivity (particularly with us heading into cooler/wetter weather) – however I’m sure we’ll have a good time (although our littlest one just came down with an ear infection – timing!)
I mentioned I was writing a list of activities to do with the boys over the time while V is away and a number of people tweeted some great suggestions. So I thought I’d write this post and invite more suggestions. Hopefully it’ll help me over the next week – but also help other parents looking for ways to entertain toddlers!
So – if you have any ideas for activities (whether they be things to do with toddlers around Melbourne – or just fun things to do with little kids in general at home that are fun) – I’m all ears!
The kids of things on my list already include cooking (both the boys love baking), a visit to the museum (and perhaps the zoo, weather permitting) etc
Looking forward to some fun ideas!
