Better With Two

Isaiah doesn't really like to be alone.  He'll do it, but he doesn't like it.  I try to let him have some alone time for a little while every day because I think that it's important for him to know how to entertain himself.

Friday mornings I try to get some major cleaning done, you know, the big stuff like mopping floors and cleaning the toilet and the tub and such, things that are better done in a block of time.  I often clean Isaiah's room first so that he can play in there while I clean the rest of the house and therefore not be crawling around on wet floors.

So where am I going with this?  One morning I woke up late and wasn't able to get my quiet time in before Little Man was up, so I put him in his room to play while I did my reading.  He was not thrilled about this situation, and by the time that I was done reading, he was more than ready to be OUT OF HIS ROOM!

We were having company, so in my mind, "not cleaning" was not an option.  What do you do?  Well, I don't know what you do, though I'm sure that you have some wonderful ideas.  What I do, however, is this:

And Isaiah loved it!  We got this Kelty Kids TC 3.0 thinking that we would use it for traveling purposes to have more hand carrying capabilities in airports.  I have now found another use for it, and both of us were quite happy.

Don't worry, he's completely secure!  We even dance around to the music that I must have playing while I'm cleaning.
