The Education of Mini Me

One of the problems with my five-minute challenge is finding the time around the ever-growing needs of my daughter.

When Mini Me was an infant, I could sneak in naps or chores around her feedings. She was easily distracted by shiny objects, which I used often to distract her so I could get things done. But she’s too smart for that now. At five years old, she is full of energy and questions, and as an only child, she expects my full attention. I have reacquainted myself with Barbie, Candyland, Chutes and Ladders, and Strawberry Shortcake. Now, she is learning to read, and daycare sends homework twice a week. The latest focus: reading.

These Sassy bathtub letters have been a lifesaver. I can spell words on the tub and shower wall for her to read while she takes a bath. We get education and cleanliness out of the same five minutes! If you have younger kids, these are good to teach colors and numbers too.
