One of my least favorite things in the entire world, is being stuck waiting in a waiting room. No, no wait. I wanna change that. My least favorite thing is being stuck in a waiting room with a rambunctious 2 year old.
I would bring small toys or books with us and my daughter would want nothing to do with them. Running around and exploring her new surroundings was far more exciting.
One of the things that has worked for us is keeping a small pack of crayons and a small notepad in my purse. And what works great for this is those small packs of 4 crayons that they give out at restaurants, like Friendly's.
With crayons handy, our daughter can keep herself busy coloring or having mom and dad color. Why are mom & dad coloring? Well that's one of her favorite games. We draw pictures and she guesses what we are drawing. That can keep her busy for a good bit of time.
