DS1 has started prep this year and loves it.
But DS2 misses him desperately. Last year he was quite happy to play on his own for short periods when DS1 was at 4yo kinder - and most of the kinder sessions were in the afternoon so he'd have a sleep anyway.
But now, with DS1 gone all day, every day, he's seems at a bit of a loss. He loves his 4yo kinder sessions (as do I!) but just wants to watch TV all the time when he's home. He's finding it harder and harder to play by himself for long periods.
I'm also due with No. 3 in less than a month, so my efforts into doing special things together has definitely dropped of. I always try to do something special with him during the day, usually cooking, or playing a game/story, or even making food shopping a special outing with a babychino. But I know it will be a lot worse for DS2 once the baby comes as I'll be even more distracted.
So just wondered if there is any tips or advice, types of activities I could be directing him towards etc, to help us get through the year.
I'm assuming that once he's at school next year, it will be much easier as the boys will be on the same timetable again, and they love playing together and are great at entertaining each other.
