Will’s Entry: Time

27 Oct

As we’re counting down the hours until the NBA season starts (literally, I’ve been thinking 11.5 hours, 8 hours, 2 hours, 1.25 hours all day), I’ve been thinking about one of the Wu’s parenting quirks.

Somewhere a long time ago, I read that it’s a good thing to give your kids advance notice when things are going to change.  I don’t mean big things, more like when dinner’s approaching or leaving the playground – that sort of things.  Anyway, Kristin and I are regularly giving 5, 2, & 1 minute warnings.  I think that has helped us as parents.  It always helps Jason and Sierra has been getting into the spirit of it as well.  I’m not certain she understands what it means, but she always responds to our “TWOOOOOO minutes!” with a very enthusiastic “OKAAAAAYYYY!!!”  I don’t know why I blogged about that but I just felt the need to post.

Another note:  the writers of Castle (TV show) thought a good good Halloween costume for its lead character would be to reprise his costume of the show Firefly.  My allergies kicked in, especially in the eye area . . .

    Doesn’t everyone do that?! I know we always did and it works! Still does as a matter of fact: “2 minutes until dinner!!! 5 minutes until you miss out completely!!”

    Sierra’s “TWOOOOO minutes!” is adorable! Wait until she uses it on you!
