what do you do when...

you haven't found a playgroup for your kid? or there aren't a wealth of fun programs or storytimes or playgrounds to take her to? and most of her toys and books are still on a boat somewhere on the ocean? and she seems kind of bored and keeps asking what we're going to do?

you put her to work.

...and she actually finds it really fun to peel garlic and it keeps her preoccupied for a while. and mom has one less thing to do too. =)

garlic

of course, i'm open to other suggestions for some creative constructive activities... anyone?

Awww... that has to be so hard!

My Lucy loves to play in the sink with measuring cups and spoons and wisks...things like that. We let the water drip a little and she thinks she's a big deal pouring and stirring it.
