Orange is really good about knowing when she needs some alone time and she will go over to the side, get out a book or puzzle and enjoy the quiet… For about 7 seconds.
With twinfant crawlers now, there is no such thing as alone time: for anyone!
To fix this issue, I’ve been trying to change up the toys available, make some baby toys seem cooler or similar to what the big kid is already doing. Today when Orange got out a Barbie puzzle, some quick thinking on my part lead to three happy kids playing together with some Melissa and Doug Chunky puzzles.
Because of course once the babies have something cool, Orange is over her need for space.
