The past two days
I started with having them read the letters off the cover of the books they brought in. This caught the notice of the lady next to me and she had a hard time believing that Maddie and Izzie were two! Then when that got boring, I started quizzing them on their signs. (Another reason why sign language is an AWESOME tool!!!) We use this in waits in grocery store lines, filling up gas, etc.) Anyway, I was asking them to show me the sign for different things and I wasn't really paying attention to anyone in the waiting room. I was just trying to prevent them from pulling each others hair out as a form of entertainment (and I did NOT want to resort to singing songs in the waiting room!!!) Next thing I know everyone in the waiting room was smiling and complementing the girls on how smart they were! Then a gentleman in the back of the waiting room said he uses sign with his hearing impaired daughter and he was super impressed with Maddie and Izzie. It did make the wait go by a little bit more pleasantly. As for the shot, it was over fairly quickly (once they straightened out the paper work mess that was taking so long) and the girls each got a sticker and a bracelet for being so good. I just got a shot.
The Frickin Chicken. I used the peanut butter to make them grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches on homemade wheat bread for dinner tonight.
