Morning! Well, today is going to be another one of those days. We have a hurricane headed this way so I need to get some posts scheduled in case I lose power. Also, Zack fell off a fence (don’t ask) and hurt his wrist, so we are going to the doctor. Also, it is Tripp’s birthday (10 years!) so we need to make it special. Uggh, anything else? LOL! Ok, on to the guide:
Invented by mom of four Suzy Martyn, you can reclaim your time around the dinner table with these best-selling reversible Mealtime Manners Placemats. Your child will follow the pathway to mealtime manners, with ten fun stops along the way.
Engaging illustrations make it easy for pre-readers to act like a “big kid.”
The girls’ side is a colorful stroll through a flowery meadow. The boys’ side, with the same ten rules, is a swerving speedway, complete with checkered flag at the finish line. Laminated for easy cleaning.
Available at Mommy MD Guides.
Mom Says: This is a super neat idea! I nice for the kids (boys on one side or girls on the other) to keep their mess off the table and learn or play in the process!
