There aren't many quiet moments in our house, but when there are these are some of the kids' favorite pastimes:
Monica: loves to sit on the couch and read for at least an hour
Maria: loves to draw out on the deck
Molly: loves to put together puzzles at the kitchen table
Lucas: loves to look at picture books
Gabe: loves to sit in his pack and play and bang on his little piano
Right now is one of those quiet moments. I just love to watch them find ways to entertain themselves in a productive way. It's so gratifying to see their interests and how different they all are.
