How to entertain a 10 month old baby

Keeping a rambunctious easily bored 10 month old entertain is quite a feat.  Especially when you have a little explorer like I do.

I love that Arren is so curious about life and all the new things he gets to experience, but sometimes I just want him to sit in one designated spot for short amount of time. ┬áCrawling after him and keeping a watchful eye on him can get really tired, baby boy is busy! He’s always up for playing and loves getting up to no good and boy does he know when he’s doing something he’s not suppose to. ┬áHe get’s this look of utter naughtiness on his face, looks me in the eyes with a look that says this time you will definitely not say no…spoiler alert…I say no;

and when I say no…

The flood gates of tantrum town opens and he just starts going crazy. ┬áHe’s slowly getting better with his tantrums, they don’t last as long as they used to, ┬áhe’s making a connection that everything is not in fact his.

On those days I just want to have a break I plop Arren in his high chair, fill the tray with water and let him splash away a storm.

At first he was a little bit apprehensive about it, but soon he was having the time of his life.  If you want to increase the level of fun give them some stuff to smash and really get messy with.


The only rule here would be to strip your baby down and keep it in an easy to clean area. ┬áIt’s so easy, but man does he love it!

Just look at this face.

pure joy!
