It’s all about the proper motivation. On a normal day in my house, my kids are still being yelled at to get dressed 10 minutes after we should have already left for school. No one leaps out of bed, gleefully puts on their school uniform, races down to the nutritious breakfast I spend hours creating (okay, so it’s toast or cereal, but still….). They have to be poked and prodded like cattle to the slaughter.
Not today. 3 minutes, dear readers. My little one had her uniform on 3 tiny minutes from the time I first poked my head into her bedroom.
How did I do it? The credit actually goes to Eilis. Because last night, while Granuaile was at her Daisy Scout meeting, Eilis took down the Playmobil sets that took over the Thomas the Tank Engine train table when Thomas became “for babies”. In place of the Playmobil, Eilis put out all of our Little People Christmas sets!
Behind Granuaile, you will see a black plastic trash bag. That bag now contains 92,741 pieces of Playmobil that Eilis wasn’t sure what to do with when she cleared them from the train table.
If you find the 3 minute motivation for putting that all back together after Christmas, let me know!
