Thank you Curious George for capturing my kids attention (all three of them, yes, I'm letting my toddler watch a bit of TV) for a blissful 25-minute block of time every Monday through Friday.
You have allowed to me to accomplish a half day's work in a very short amount of time. For we all know that 25 kid-free minutes equals approximately 4 hours of children-under-foot minutes. Things like-
clearing and loading breakfast dishes into dishwasher, wiping down counters, sweeping kitchen floor, putting in a load of laundry checking e-mails and let's not forget the all-important first cup of coffee.
And besides, this morning ritual has become a multi-age bonding session for my children. For what else can capture the attention of a six year old, four year old and 17-month old child at the same time and pull them into a big snuggle sandwich on the sofa?
