Phone Time

For those of us who have to be on the phone uninterrupted but have small kids this can sometimes be a big challenge! One idea is to have a phone toy box. Put a few fun toys into a box and put it away where the kids can't get it (on top of the fridge or near the phone are two good places.) When you need to talk on the phone uninterrupted you can pull out this box and let the kids play with a toy from inside until you are done, then the toy goes back into the box.

Kids look forward to your phone conversations now and feel like they get a treat when you are on the phone. This also keeps the toys seeming fresh and new to them, ensuring they do not lose interest as quickly!
