How do you handle actually doing house work or something like cooking, getting ready or doing makeup - is it fine to leave my LO to roam around the room and explore or play on her own? I always make sure I am aware of where she is and talk to her throughout, and when she needs me or wants me, I pick her up, play with her or tend to whatever need it is she needs filling, and I make sure I set aside dedicated playtime with her for the rest of the day - but what about those in-between life-moments? I mean surely one is not supposed to be actively playing with them every hour of the day?
Please can you let me know what you do in the day and how you handle playtime and housework as well as letting children play on their own, which I know they also need to be able to do. How do you balance this?
My other question: I am currently pregnant and baby will be born when LO is 20 months. How to handle a toddler and a newborn?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
