I’ve got a ton of posts nearly completed, and intend to get those finished and posted… someday. In the meantime, those of you who are parents of preschoolers, try this tip when you’re frazzled and need 60 seconds of silence:

Call Elmo and let your little one listen to Elmo Sing “Brush your Teeth”. To hear Elmo Sing call Toll Free 1-866-356-6847. It’s to the tune of Jingle Bells… “Brush your teeth, brush your teeth, brush them morn & night” Press 1 to repeat the message and hear Elmo sing again!

I can’t remember where I got this tip (from some other blog) but we tried it out today, and Jimmy loved it. I felt a little bad though when Elmo first came on, and Jimmy tried to engage him in conversation. He looked a little confused when Elmo kept talking and refused to answer him. The super cute song made up for not actually getting to talk to Elmo though.
