Pick 'em Up, Throw 'em Down
Fortunately, Jack hasn't yet learned the "throw the toy on the floor and watch mommy pick it up" game yet. But even if it's not on purpose, he's not very good at keeping his toys within reach. He's kind of like a windmill, with arms flailing about knocking over everything in his circle. And then he gets upset when there are no toys left. After picking up each toy every 30 seconds to put it back on his swing tray, I finally wisened up. Why not pile EVERY toy in front of Jack while he picks them off one by one. When the last one hits the floor I just pile them all back up again. Ah ha! Yet another trick from the lazy Mama book.
