Stash Fun, Distracting Items in Different Rooms

Need time to sit in your home office and pay bills, or to pre-chop veggies for tonight’s dinner – but your baby wants to play? Keep a stash of toys and books in these areas (and your bedroom) to distract your little one long enough to get a task done. Rotate toys to keep him interested. Another bonus: he will learn ways to entertain himself.
