Best Mom Tool Ever

We recently picked up my new favorite addition to my mom aresenal. The digital timer. My neighbor has been using one for years. And at Dean's suggestion, I finally picked one up from Amazon. It always amazes me how the simplest things have the biggest impact on kids.

So now, when it's five minutes to bedtime, we set the timer and the girls head straight to the bathroom to brush their teeth. No arguing. It's not us telling them, it's the timer. And for whatever reason, that works. When they both want a toy, I set the timer and when it beeps, it gets handed over to the sister w/out complaints.

Brilliant! Dean gets big dad points for this one. Love that guy...

Ballet Class

Katherine had her first ballet class at the Y today. So cute! And yes, our little peanut was BY FAR the smallest in the class. But she kept up like a champ! Small and mighty, that one.

Yes, they are all two, really!
