Answer by Miss Marlboro
I’m 19 and in college. I don’t prefer shy guys, although I do like “caring” guys who love animals. But I sort of hate children.

The kind of guy I prefer is very clever, intellegent, sly in a non-malicious way, sarcastic and with an adventurous spirit. I tend to think men who are too “easy to get along with” are boring and always bent on avoiding conflict. Personalities with character and a dash of controversy are the best for me. But I’m always told I’m not easy to get along with either, so I might not be your type anyway.

This does NOT mean I like men who treat me like crap or are “players,” I just like guys who have a zest for life and don’t change their views to meet others needs. A strong will, sense of honor, and a word of gold are huge plusses also.

What can I get a two year old with a broken ankle?
My friend’s toddler broke her ankle on Friday. She can’t be on her feet for 6 weeks. Any ideas what kind of toys or videos I could get her to help keep her occupied for at least a bit?

O that poor little girl! How awful. I am sure she will make a full recovery. I have a beautiful two year old granddaughter. She is quite a handful.

I am sure plenty of people will provide lots of good ideas to keep her occupied. I will pray for her parents that they will be granted the patients to deal with her needs. It will not be easy!

get her a wagon so she can sit in it but still be around everyone and go with people even though she cant walk. try baby dolls, finding nemo, coloring books and spending time with her if she is stuck in her bed or on the couch so she doesnt want to try to get up… its just a few ideas hope they help

Answer by Lone Wolf
I really like Sroyal’s idea for the wagon… make sure it’s padded on the bottom, and she can go anywhere.

Movies are pretty easy. Some of the older movies (VHS or DVD) you can probably rent a bunch for cheaper at the video store, of the old Disney movies. Coloring and fingerpainting (Crayola Color Wonders is awesome – no color streaks!). Or try making vanilla pudding fingerpaint; use food coloring in it. She can color on paper with a tray on her lap, and then eat it when she’s done. Or try making sock puppets with her, and either hold a show for her, or with her for her mom/dad/siblings!

I wish her well, and her parents’ much luck. I have a 2 1/2 year old myself — they do NOT like to stay still!

there are several toddler “laptops” that are educational and will keep her occupied for hours. Also plenty of coloring books and a new pack of crayons is a classic. If her parents have a computer maybe a toddler software program would help keep her occuppied.
Also let her mom know a great way to keep her from messing with the cast or brace is to wrap it with an ace bandage and give her washable markers to color the bandage. Keep a couple of different bandages around and wash them as they get full of her doodles.
Also wooden puzzles for toddlers are always a hit with little ones.

Answer by eri
A nice book with flaps would be good, or a giant coloring pad Crayola has a really big one with box of big crayons, or PLAY-DO… can be messy but will keep her entertained!

Answer by eve
So sorry! One thing is for sure, she can spend hours with books and be occupied and learn so much. There are so many great books out there and many of them come in board book form so she can hold them and look at them and no one has to worry about her ripping pages. She can look at them on her own and hopefully people will read to her often. Just go to your local bookstore and pick out whatever you like yourself. I could make suggestions but, you almost can’t go wrong just going to the children’s section and finding what looks good to you. She can’t have too many books!

How do you entertain an antsy 1 year old on a plane?

How do you entertain an antsy 1 year old on a plane?
We’re flying from Seattle to Chicago next weekend for our daughter’s 1st birthday and I need to know how to keep her occupied for those 4 hours. She’s pretty antsy and doesn’t like having to sit for extended periods of time.

Answer by dana t
Well I know she’s younger than my little boy was when we first flew but here are a few thoughts …

1) Lots of snacks and drinks (especially for take off and landing when their ears may hurt)
2) Books (especially ones with interaction)
3) Coloring Books and Crayons
4) If you have an iphone or similar phone they have really cool “games” for babies and toddlers – many for free
5) Stickers – just to stick everywhere – kids love to peel off stickers and stick them on things – Target and Walmart have those 700+ sticker coloring books. And the stickers are just the right amount of stickiness – they won’t stay long.
6) When you are in the airport don’t try to make her “sit” let her get out all the wiggles. Wears them out a little
7) Maybe a “new” toy that she hasn’t seen before
8) Try to book the flight during nap time

If I think of any others I post them … Good luck!

Answer by Krista
go to the dollar store and pickup some cheap toys. Whenever she’s becoming antsy whip out a brand new toy that will keep her entertained the duration of the trip!

Answer by MIchelle B
i had to travel 6 hours flight i sat my daughter next to the window kept her entertain with toys telling her where we were going why and who we are going to see read her books and flight attendants were really helpful i was traveling by my self i believe you are traveling with husband ? you should be ok , it work for me Have a great trip!

Answer by Smiling_Lady
Make sure you have time in the park or allow her to run around and burn off some energy before you go. A portable DVD player will be your lifesaver..even if she watches the movies over and over.

Don’t be too afraid to let others on the plane hold her and play with her…I’ve seen that done many times. Most people like/love children…so they would be happy for the distraction as well.

Books, books, books.

Hopefully she will sleep…that would be your biggest blessing!! lol

Good luck and have a great time.
