Sticks and stones

When the kids were first born you could take them outside, plop them in a pack and play or car seat and throw some mesh to keep the bugs off. And if you weren't entirely exhausted by lack of sleep, you could conceivably do some yard work.

Once they started walking, that kind of went out the window. For the first couple of years, walking was way more trouble than it was worth. They fell off of everything. They fell from standing. Add ice and snow into the mix and it would get especially comical. Basically, even if you were hovering around them like an insane mama-bird, they'd fall and need to be righted, or aim dead for the swamp with their plastic vehicles and have to have a sudden course correction.
