Santa came to the preschool party today. Queen S thought he was ok. She gave him a courtesy smile, but I could tell she was a little worried about why he wasn't making toys up at the North Pole.

Is it any wonder when an old man puts on a fake beard and is overly enthusiastic about having little children on his lap, that some youngsters react like this??

Mommy needs to sort through laundry. How oh HOW to keep my girls occupied,entertained, and getting along? My sheer brilliance was a barbie bath party....well....

10 minutes later, their sheer brilliance was this.....

What I love about this:

They are in a contained space...within another contained space...let the water splash!!

They have personal space...so no kicking, bumping,toy stealing, or giving a sister a surprise shower with the colander.

They were content playing while mommy ransacked the laundry room for....drumroll please... 1 & 1/2 HOURS!!!!

Oh, yes! We WILL be using THIS method to bust up the madness again...and again and again and again!! (PS...pay no attention to the griminess of my tub...the maid was off this week. And the week before. She may never come back. She's too busy with the laundry.)
