I am often left feeling bad that I am feeding, consoling or otherwise giving attention to Ava while ignoring Ryan. Ryan can be high energy but he also will concentrate on something if he is into it. A friend gave me the idea for an easy activity with pipe cleaners and a colander. All I did was turn the colander upside down, hand him the pipe cleaners and bam! 30 minutes of total concentration and practice of hand eye coordination!
I see a future engineer at work!
