One of the things I have found to be a good replacement for those times I need to put on my make up or work in the kitchen or other things that he can't "help" with is educational games on my iPod Touch. I have found many free or very inexpensive apps that work on letters, phonics, numbers and logic. This along with his Brain Quest cards, thanks nanny, have become a good alternative. Don't get me wrong we will still have the occasional TV time but it will be limited, like when I am posting on my blog. ;-)

What do you find is a good alternative when you need 5 or 10 min to get things done?
