Summer Survival Part Deux - Twofer go to work

You know the saying of a part-time working mom...

When the going gets tough, the tough go to work.

And sometimes, when my options are completely exhausted, I bring the Twofer to work with me.

What to pack for a day at work with twins

Just packing to bring them to work with me takes an hour of preperation. An hour of preperation to hopefully keep them occupied for 3 hours. Here's what I bring:

Books (only 4-5 long ones like Toot & Puddle since they can get heavy)

Coloring books and crayons (I like the Crayola Twistables Crayons that don't require sharpening, paper peeling, etc.)

Electronic games (We have not yet entered the Leapster® or Nintendo DS phase yet but we do have LeapPads® that have really cute features like a microphone that plays back your voice for hour of potty-mouth fun.)

Food (mostly small snacks because the 'reward' for being good is lunch at the Chinese restaurant nearby)

DVD Player (Puh-lease - you knew this was coming. Plus, they only get to watch one (1) while we are there)

Here's the Whrrl story so you can see how the day went

Keep in mind, they look very occupied, but every 10 minutes or so we switched activities, I had to dole out snack, or mediate an argument....until that DVD player was turned on. All in all I got about 2.5 hours of work done, but it's more than I would have done at home that day.

Some days - you just gotta go to work,
