Wipe Out

For some reason, Brennan and Jackson are obsessed with ABC's summer show, Wipe Out. I'm not sure if they think all the people falling of the obstacle courses into mud and water is funny, or if they love staying up past their bedtime, but they are hooked. They ask if it is on every night and talk about it during the day.
Yesterday, Brennan made his own wipe out course in his toy room with trucks, little people, and blocks...no water allowed! He played with it for what seemed likes hours.
I don't mind this newest craze. It gives me some leverage to get them to do things quickly on Tuesday nights.
"Brush your teeth quickly before Wipe Out starts!"
"Eat all your veggies or you go to bed on time"
"Who can pick up the most LEGO's during this commercial break?"
Things like that.
Oh, and right now the boys are getting ready for the big show, by picking up all of their boys and getting ready for bed...giving me a few minutes of freedom to do whatever I want.

3 Words to brighten my day:

HA!! McKenna and Mason love it too. We watched it for the first time last night. After their bath I plop them down in front of the television while I comb their hair and stuff, this happened to be on. I must say for the first time they didn't squirm or try to get away, they were in a trance.

It sounds like you've got those boys trained well! Leverage is always a great tool.
