I am a SAHM with a 4 year old (just turned 4) and 11 month old. For the past few weeks, my 4 year old will not even play in a different room than me. He's gone through spurts like this before and I know it's a normal developmental phase, but I feel like I can't get anything done (especially quiet time with the Lord) which I desperately need! He also won't stop talking, asking me questions and wanting me to constantly "watch mommy; look at this" . Again, I know this is normal, but I'm finding myself getting impatient and frustrated with him and I'm not really sure how to manage this phase. It was different when he was an only child and went through this, but now I have a another and am much busier! Any advice on how to keep him occupied so I can finish what I'm doing? Thanks so much!
