DD is in therapy every week day (ASD, developmental delays), she is almost 3, but non-verbal. DH and I both work full time and I am alone with the kids in the evening (DS is 8.5 months, NT as far as we know). So pretty much weekdays are not a whole lot of fun other than a short window of time I have alone with the two kids to play before bed. Weekends are often spent catching up on chores and errands like grocery shopping. I feel like we are in a rut and haven't spent much quality time out of the house lately. I feel bad for the kids being stuck in the house so much too with the weather.
I need some suggestions for family winter activities with little ones, one of which is developmentally delayed, non-verbal, but active with lots of energy, and a baby. We tried the childrens museum, but weekends are so busy she was very overwhelmed and over-stimulated and had a meltdown. She loves indoor gyms, but that's the only thing I can think of to do. Thought about going to sensory friendly films, but DD has never been interested in TV and not sure if she would even watch it.
Second question - any suggestions for meal planning ideas for picky eaters, I feel like I mostly make pasta of some sort, pizza or PB&J every night, but want to try to get her to branch out. She eats ground meats so I add in chili or naked burritos, but I am in a rut with meals too.
