My online distraction right now is iPhone Apps. A few I can recommend for distracting 2 year olds:
- Pre School Music, $0.99 - Four games in one, your toddler can tap on fish and change them to other animals, tap to make sheep sing, play a piano, or tap birds to sing in a round.
- Adams's Art Coloring, $1.99 - White and black canvasses, plus "coloring book" images, and the option to 'save' your kid's arts on a refrigerator.
Friday FAQuestion from a reader:
I know your nanny went home recently and I have a question - did she need to apply for a reentry visa or anything ahead of time? (Our nanny) is going home in June so I want to make sure all our ducks are in a row so she can come back here easily. She has a valid Visa and passport.
My Answer, verified by Dear A:
She didn't need a re-entry visa. We provide a letter of support that she takes with her along with her work permit, passport and this year she also took her H1N1 vaccination paperwork because another nanny mentioned they asked her about it in Hong Kong in transit.
The Letter of Support I used:
February 19, 2010
To Whom It May Concern:
(Dear A) is an employee of (My Name). She has been given vacation leave for the purpose of travel to the Phillipines, from Feb 21st 2010‐March 14th 2010.
Upon her return to Canada, she will return to her full-time role as a caregiver.
