How do you have...

...two children, one 6 years old and the other 6 months old playing in the same room, when the 6 year old is playing with lego and all its associated small pieces, and the 6 month old is crawling and wanting to play with everything her big brother is playing with?

Pip is too young to learn to leave Dr John's things alone and of course his things hold so much more allure than her own, and to me it seems unfair that the onus is solely on Dr John to be careful with his things.

I know, I know, its hardly an earth stopping problem.  I just need other people to do my thinking for me at the moment :(

Maybe that's why Lego tables were invented?

Can't quite believe Pip is independently moving already. Time flashes by.

One option is to keep all the choking hazards in his room, and put up a baby gate at his door, then keep all the baby-safe toys in the living room.

What we did was we just had E play with his small toys at the kitchen table, but it's not as fun for a kid as playing on the floor.
