6 sanity savers for cold days

I am driving from Yosemite back to my house in Berkeley, suffering a little case of family-gatherings-mostly-take-place-indoors-especially-when-you’ve-rented-a-cabin-in-the-winter, so I bring you a few thematically linked posts. All intended to help fight the Stir Crazies.

  1. Fussy newborn? Bounce it out. Or just get out of the house. Place baby in front carrier, zip jacket around her, and go.
  2. Excitable preschooler? How to make a tutu to keep your ballerina busy – without sewing!
  3. Fearing the 4 pm witching hour? Brave the world and head to an outdoor supply store like REI. This quick outing will entertain everyone, and then head home in time for dinner.
  4. Need a project? Publish your own . Use her special items like a monogrammed spoon or pacifier to personalize the scenes.
  5. Feed your kid on the floor since that’s where it’s all gonna end up anyway.
  6. Want to get wet? Try potching.
