Waiting is tough.
Whether at a restaurant waiting for food; or at a store waiting to check out…

My strategy, my ‘toolbox’ if you will, for dealing with these moments is my cell phone camera.

Focusing the attachlings’ attention onto themselves (and one another) and away from the wait is transformative.

And THAT is the most important tool in my parenting toolbox — fun — finding fun and ways to get the daily tasks done in cooperative ways.
