We are headed back to Chicago tonight, a fate only worse than being cleaned for the baby, I am sure. Good bye fishing docks, sunny beaches, doting grandparents, hello cold cruel world. On some level I’m looking forward to winter again (masochist?), but I don’t know how we will make it though 3 more months of it. Just think, 3 months from now Harper will probably be walking and taking a bit. The ground will only be beginning to thaw.
Really, how will we make it though being stuck indoors till March/April-ish? We have new toys from Christmas, maybe if I give her one a week. O.k., that will give us about 10-20 minutes of fun about 3 times a day, more or less. We have playgoups, say about 3 days a week from 11:00-1:00. We could build a fort? Fun for mom. Nap. Snack. Repeat? HELP! How do I keep her occupied without dirt or a swing?
