Blankie time


A wise mother of many once shared this idea. She has a lot of children. Maybe you have heard of her? The idea is that you train your children to sit in a designated are, we use a blankie, give them a few toys and they have to stay there till you let them get up. The "Abster" HATED this at first (as you can see in the picture) but has now gotten used to the idea. She can sit on blankie time quite happily for 10-15 minutes playing with her toys. Which gives me plenty of time to do things that require my full attention. Like chopping food with a sharp knife, or taking a short break on the couch. *Ahem*
I love blankie time, and Abster is accepting it as a part of life. *Smile*
