With a title like that, you may be wondering…caffeine? chocolate? girls’ night out?
Nope…a stop watch.
Seriously! It might not be the most glamorous thing but unless I am going out, I wear a sports watch because of the stop watch component.
I use it many different way – timeout being one. The next is to keep track of trampoline time. Whenever Bubs starts getting “out of control” he jumps on our mini trampoline for seven minutes. Amazing results! The last is for clean up time. I will give the kiddos five minutes to do such-n-such.
So, do yourself a favor and don’t spend time looking for an egg timer. Simply look at your wrist. Sure has helped me!
For the record – When I purchase my next watch, I will make sure that it has a countdown feature that beeps at the end. Something to keep in mind!
