Grandparents visiting Oz "Where to take two under twos in Melbourne"


Lorney Days

Recommended Posts

Make a list of what you want to do, and do them.

 

However:

 

Under twos cannot interact with anything on an outing. They are just as happy to be rolling around on the floor at home.

 

It will take a long time to get ready for an outing.

 

It will take a long time to get them in and out of the car.

 

It will take a long time to change nappies throughout the day.

 

You will want to go home after two hours.

 

Any dodgy weather will make everything worse!

Thank you for your quick reply. The children love animals so I thought they would enjoy an animal farm or something like that. They cannot spend everyday rolling around the floor!

A quick visit to the seaside and a lovely messy ice cream, I'm a Grandparent so that's OK mess washes off. I change nappies on my knee and any where as quick as a flash so that will not be a deterrent either. Dodgy weather is ok too they are not made of sugar. Any more suggestion now?? Please.

No it's realistic.

 

We have two pre schoolies.

 

Both sets of grandparents raised at least three kids each.

 

They have forgotten what it's like to have small kids 24 hours a day.

 

It takes them at least twice as long to do anything.

 

They are exhausted after a day and want to be alone to start drinking.

i know, it's very realistic! I have a 2 & 4 year old. Half hour battle at least to get sun cream on in the morning. Just made the prospect of looking after them so unappealing. Young kids are flaming hard work.
