(*Fine, I'm kidding about the happy hour - but the first person to build a playground with a spiked coffee bar for parents gets my vote.)
In fact, I'm surprised to find myself at risk of over-scheduling us - if I let it happen, we could have at least one class or organized outing to go to every day. It's one thing to keep up our "leave the house once a day" policy, which keeps both boy & me stimulated and happy. Isn't it entirely another, possibly crazy-making thing, though, to make all of those outings a scheduled thing - especially given that I have a 1.5 year old who can be equally entertained by things like standing in the yard watching clouds drift by?

I can't believe I'm asking this, as parent to newly minted toddler, but - anyone else struggle with this over-scheduling thing? How do you maintain that fun/free time balance?
