DP is going on a walking hol and DD1 is going off on hols with a friend and family.

That leaves me and my psycho toddler all by ourselves for a week from this weekend.

Aaaaaaaagh. How do I entertain her?

I'm not very good at this mummy stuff. blush

Stick her in front of cbeebies, and open the wine

When it's not raining, take her to the park? You may well meet others in the same position.

Find cafes which offer highchairs.

See if there's any other MNers with crazy toddlers near you.

Lots of walks.
Lots of crafts.
Lots of singing, dancing and silliness.
Lots of book reading - visit the library.

Crafts!!! grin

Re crafts - I was thinking painting, clay and sticking, as opposed to warcraft or witchcraft, but whatever helps to pass the time. grin
