I picked up 4 bags of baby last week, tossed three in the freezer. It was on sale for 75 cents an 8 ounce bag...maybe it all got sent to Montana???

Just be careful. If this virus comes back at you, it does so with a vengence. Make sure he stays hydrated. And keep some bleach wipes on hand to clean counters and bathroom facility handles clean on a regular basis. Hand sanitizer wouldn't hurt either.

Get some old sheets, push some chairs together and make them a tent. I have yet to see a youngster that doesn't like tents. Make a pallet for them to sleep on. Give them their lunch in there. Give them some 'pretending' ideas. And let them take some coloring books or other quiet activity in the tent. If they are boys, the tent can become the parking garage for their trucks. Girls, they can put their babies to sleep in the tent.

We remember what we liked as children.

Both excellent ideas, Addie.

My mom used to do that with the dining room table! We had many indoor camping expeditions when we were kids! Now I think I would just pop em in the dryer on air only for a few minutes!

My younger sisters had bunk beds, and they were perfect for making tents!

On summer nights we used to hang either old sheets or blankets over the wash lines to make tents.
