Fires = Boring for Babies

I am sure everyone knows about the fires burning all over California and making the air quite a mess. Auburn is no exception. I do not know if you can tell from the pictures, but there is a nasty smoke cloud lingering like fog everywhere. It smells so bad, and if you look closely, you can see fairly large particles floating everywhere. NOT a good day to be outside; nor was yesterday, and probably not for the next several days.
That said, what is a Mommy to do with a Peanut who is used to playing outside for a good portion of the day?
I am going totally insane, and so is Little P, so we have to turn to the Toddler Busy Book, all of the toys, and all of the story books scattered around the house.
Today after we finished cleaning Paul's room, bouncing balls all over the house, reading a million books, cleaning Paul's room again and blowing a half-gallon of bubbles Mommy decided it was nap time... Paul did not think it was nap time.
So, Mommy resorted to the babysitter, and Paul is currently watching his Little People DVD. At least he is sitting down. Oh, how I wish the air was clean!
Any ideas for entertainment for a mommy and a baby stuck inside????
