We tried: A bag of desperation.

After months of pulling my hair out trying to find something to keep Miss T’s attention for more than 5 seconds I was almost ready to hand over my iphone and drown myself in a puddle of defeat.

In desperation yesterday we went op-shopping and brought home a little bag of random, pre-loved toy cars and trucks.

Was this victory?  It certainly looked closer than it had been as she busied herself in a serious conversation with a red fire truck all the way home.

Definitely a victory!  She sits still AND plays.  Well maybe only for 15-30min at a time, but hey, that’s hours on 5 seconds.

She pokes her chubby finger into the windows, spins the wheels, turns each one around and around and around.  Then starts all over again.

Such a brilliant, cheap and unexpected discovery.
