Help! Logan is driving me nuts and I need some ideas to keep him busy. He is into everything he knows he's not supposed to and if I don't figure something out, we won't make it through winter.
He's 1 1/2 and a busy boy. I have tried coloring, but he just eats the markers/crayons/colored pencils because he knows he's not supposed to. I put fabric scraps in a wipes case and he pulls them out once and he's done. He doesn't put them back in. He didn't like finger painting, but I haven't tried lately.
Also, I don't know how to get him to behave. He gets into stuff all.day.long! And he knows better. Flicking/swatting his hand doesn't work. He remembers and goes right back when I try to distract him with something else. I have been doing time out after a warning, where I make him sit for thirty seconds to a minute and I tell him why he's there. I started that Sunday, so it's still new. So far it's not working. Help!
PS- He started this before Anders was born, so it's not all because of him. Logan does get jealous when I nurse, though.
