It looks like we're going to be in Houston for a full day, and are trying to find something to do. Difficulty: We have a two-year-old in tow, and Houston's famed Children's Museum is closed on Mondays. :( [more inside]

My 22-month-old son has taken to stripping. He's quick, he's crafty, and he takes everything off at every opportunity. Buttons, zippers, Velcro and admonishments do not stop him. How can I get him to keep his clothes and diaper on?

We are driving from New Hampshire to St. Louis over a two day period (12/26 - 12/27) with our 3 1/2 and 2 year old children. Any suggestions for keeping our sanity on this 20 hour drive (and the return trip 7 days later)? [more inside]

Pat-a-cake; The Itsy Bitsy Spider ... and ....?
Can you suggest some traditional rhymes/games with motions
like the two above that I can play with my 16 month old son. Preferably things that can be done lying down (so Head Shoulder Knees and Toes won't work well).

We've read every book, played with water in the sink, re-arranged all of his cars and trains, played hide-and-seek, climbed on the dog, and it's only 9 a.m. What was your favorite indoor activity as a two-year old, or what's keeping your favorite toddler amused these days?

Bicycles. I know nothing about them outside of the obvious 2 wheels and chain part. I need a bike. Not a fancy bike. A sturdy bike. A bike that can handle a wiggly 30+ pound toddler on the back...in a seat, preferably...or maybe something that can be towed behind a bike? Recommendations for bikes? Recommendations for kid seats?
