A is 2 and wakes up around 6:30, which is right when I start getting ready for work. We've been letting the kids hang out in our bed and watch cartoons while DH and I get showered and ready for the day but it's getting harder to turn off the TV in the mornings and the fits are starting to carry over to the car ride to school and drop-off. So I know we need to turn the TV off in the mornings, but I'm worried about her getting into things when I can't really have eyes on her.

How does everyone handle mornings with the kiddos while you get ready for work? What activities do you use to keep the kids entertained and out of trouble?
