How To Entertain Kids When You’re Too Tired To Stand Up

So much of parenting a young child involves manoeuvring your ageing body up and down. Your kid wants to go feed the goldfish, so you get up. Then he wants to play with floor puzzles, so you get down. Then he wants a snack, so you’re up again. And then you’re down. And then you’re up. And then down. And then up. And then down. This happens all day, every day, until the kid finally passes out.
