The Art of Keeping a 2 Year Old Busy

So, it started to rain yesterday, and it's going to rain all week. We're used to going for walks every morning and then stop at the park to play. Then it's lunchtime followed by a nap, and in the afternoon we either visit another park, play outside, or do stuff around the house. Now we're going to have to rethink our schedule. The park is too wet, and we actually don't have any great rain gear. Yes, we have rain boots. but that's about it. If we had been in Sweden this had been a non issue. There is no bad weather, just bad choice in clothing. If you have a toddler you'd still go outside and they'd look like a little michelin man all dressed in layers of clothing, winteroveralls, and boots.

So, now I'm scheduling my week with playdates to prevent bringing down the house from boredom. Today we're going to the mall to run around and people watch, tomorrow I'm dropping the toddler off at a friend's house, on Wednesday we're both playing (well, the moms are having coffee) at another friend's house. Then on Thursday I will have a little girl over to play with my angel at our house, and on Friday we're going to an inside play ground called Jungleland with a group of friends. It's going to be a busy week. Hope I will survive!
