Re: Mamas with 15 month olds. What do you DO?
Well my son just turned 16 months old, but we are really cold here, too. It's 15 below zero today and it's been a cooold winter. But we go outside when we can, all bundled up, because Thor LOVES outside. He begs to go out all the time. He drags his snowsuit, or his snowboots, or my coat, etc around all the time!
I just follow him around. He just likes to tot around and check out the snow.
Inside, we just do normal stuff like play with toys, read books, etc... but I have found it helps to bring him upstairs for a change of pace when he really wants to go outside but we can't. We take more baths, as well, to keep him occupied!
I haven't tried to bring him snowshoeing yet, but I know he would love that! I don't have a carrier that would work for him!! Plus, we are limited with our new little one... she's just too little to go outside.
Sorry that is random jabber but hope it helps alittle.
