Little boys I have heard are easier to occupy than little girls. You can send little boys outside in a sand pile and they will be happy for a while! Give them a truck with the sand pile and hours of fun! Give them a ball and a place to throw with their dad . . . hours! Give them a video game . . . weeks of occupation. (Even though - I will not allow my kids to spend hours playing video games!) Did you know that the average kid only is outside for 7 minutes a day! No wonder America has pasty chubby kids! I know it is easy to occupy kids now a days with all the technology they can ever dream of. But I would love it if my boy was involved in every sport there is known to man!
No pasty white fat kids! ;)
