Liam's New Habit

On days that we are home in the morning (which is most days), Nora and Liam have "room time" where they play independently in their rooms for about 30-45 minutes. Over the past few weeks, Liam has started to do this:

Actually, the pictures I took this day were early on in this new activity. One day, he emptied his ENTIRE toy box into his bed. I guess he has big plans for naptime! Silly, crazy kiddo!

What do you do during their independent play? I need to do this with Gavin during Henley's morning nap!

Hey Allyson,

I usually use that time to clean up from breakfast, start laundry, fold laundry, make my bed, start dinner, return phone calls, etc. It's my only uninterrupted time until naptime, so I try to get as much done as I can around the house. They play with toys, read books, basically whatever they want to do in their room without being destructive. Sometimes Liam has a hard time, but he's built up to the amount of time he's in there now. We can chat more if you are interested in how I introduced it to them. I love it!
