Mommy time: the queue

I am developing a strategy for mommy-time.

I have had to set a few ground rules, mostly for myself.

Mommy time rule #1- Keep it simple.

First of all, I need to be able to remember whose turn it is.  There are a million ways to do this, but for me, it has to be simple.  

Here is our simple queue:




Now, when I have 15 minutes to spare, I can invest it in mommy time with the child next in line.



These sweet children are waiting in line on the wall in our dining room.  Now, every time we eat a meal, they have the joy of reminding us whose turn is next for mommy/daddy time.

I might regret providing this opportunity for nagging.  Yet, I think I need to be pestered about this.
