The Watch

Mornings around here are not the most fun.  Mostly because I am constantly hounding Kevin on what to do next in order to get ready for school.  Well, yesterday we had a minor breakthrough.  We got a free watch out of the cereal box.  Kevin loves it and has taken to looking at it often to tell me what time it is.  So yesterday I told him we needed to be in the car by 8, and he needs to be in line at school by 8:15.  I've told him this probably 1000 times before, but now with the watch he was actually able to see it for himself.  We were in the car on time both yesterday and today, with very little pushing on my part!  Why hadn't I thought of this before?   

Meanwhile, Zach and I are spending the day at home.  I took him to the doctor yesterday for his lingering cough and found out he has a double ear infection.  Last night we were up several times and he has thrown up a few times too, I think because of he fever from his infections.  Hopefully the medicine will start working soon and he will feel better.  So the plan for today.... taking it easy!

I am so sorry to hear about Zach. Yikes, double ear infection, not good. Poor guy. I hope this afternoon finds him feeling better.
Give him a great big bear hug from us.

Glad the watch has helped Kevie and you too. Amazingly simple, huh.

Love you all, Susan, Namie and U.D.

Glad to hear that Zach is up and around and feeling much better today. I missed getting to see the guys after the zoo today. But, really glad that Zach is better and will go to pre-school tomorrow. It will be good when this silly cold season is over.
Love to you all,
Grandma Dee

what a wonderful idea! mornings aren't so pleasant at my house either. Logan is very punctual. But Linnea drags her feet. Perhaps i'll try your idea. Hope Zach feels better. Poor guy!
