I was reviewing for my exam the other day at the same time attending to my very active toddler. How I was able to that, see the photo. We're both on the dining table, I used the carseat so it would be hard for my son to leave where he's at and reach for my things. I gave him lots of books and let him watch Thomas at the same time. All distractions were given to him so as not to disturb me even for a couple minutes. I was memorizing my notes when he kept on asking for lots of things such as juice, next Thomas movie, cookies and later screaming 'all done, all done' for nth times. So I gave up, I stopped reviewing and waited for his bedtime to resume. I'm good in multi-tasking but my son always seeks attention on the wrong time.
