Re: discipline....sneaky!!!

I used to have "quiet" bucket and put special toys/snacks inside and whenever I had to be on the phone for an extended period of time or feed the baby I would have them go get their bucket (I used those big ice cream buckets with the lids and handles), and sit when I could see them. They only got their bucket during this time, had to be quiet and had to put it away when I was done. You have to take time to keep it updated but it worked like a charm Might be worth a try? Other than that I used to say, "Grab some books!" and they had to look at books by my feet.
