Great mommy trick: Set the timer to look at books!

Posted by on September 7, 2010
After we shop at Target for everything on our list (we try to stick to the list, it keeps us focused), I always let the kids look at books for 5 minutes. It keeps Jessie out of the toy section and she has something to look forward to after our shopping is done. It keeps her behaved, too! Well, I must say, she’s a behaved kid anyways. (Most of the time ha ha!) So I set my iPhone to 5 minutes and the kids look at books. Amazingly, when Jessie hears the timer alarm, she puts her books down and runs back to the shopping cart! It’s a great mommy trick. Jessie rarely asks for extra things to buy for her. She’s a good kid. And Marissa, too!
