It Worked For Me!

My Favorite Things

I gave my 4 1∕2-year-old son a disposable camera when I was pregnant with my second child and told him to take pictures of the things he likes to do. We used the pictures to make a book we called "Big Brother Alex." Inside we wrote, "Things Alex likes to do while Mommy is feeding Baby Kate," and we pasted pictures of his dress-up costumes, building blocks, and so on. Now when Alex claims he's bored while I'm nursing Kate, I tell him to grab his special book and find one of his favorite activities to do until I'm free. This occupies him long enough for me to give my attention to the baby.
