OMG, I would have been staying home with my 2 year old rather than going to Mass. He could make it about 10 min before he needed to be up and moving. I could log 2K-3K steps with him in an hour.
I guess my n=1 experience is different…¯_(ツ)_/¯
Two of my three kids were very active. Around 4 our oldest was really good about sitting, our middle son was earlier, and our 3 year old is still a “wild card”. For our oldest and now youngest it wasn’t/isn’t the terrible 2’s but the terrible 3’s. Having a place to take them is a need.
The two oldest rarely had problems once they got to that kindergarten age. Kids are different…
