I've tried for months to find a solution to Annelise' constant need of me when I have work to do from home. She hates to be in a room alone and often requires much of my attention during the day, even if it means she sits on my lap while I type. While we were on vacation, we decided to get her a new toy. My mom bought her a small set of legos, which she took to very quickly. Who knew that a $5 set of blocks could solve much of my work-from-home woes! She now plays very happily on the office floor, while I accomplish my work at the desk above her. I even enjoy her frequent serenades, as seen in this video.
