What I Do Instead of Using the Television as a Babysitter in Emergencies

There is no doubt that sometimes I need a break and desperately want a distraction for Anders, something that will occupy him for at least an hour. Instead of a horrific television show a Disney movie, in these "emergencies," I use home videos.

Long ago I started making this playlist for Anders and now, if I need a break, he has a good ninety minutes of memories to watch. It works like a charm.

I absolutely love this solution to a classic parent problem and highly recommend it.
