That's good advice and all - but it's also good to get where you are going before the event is over.
I let anna walk to the library. I thought having her push a stroller would encourage faster walking.
It encouraged dilly dallying because she had to show Cookie Monster everything she knows about Sherwood. "look cookie, those berries are poisonous, they will kill you if you eat them" yup - she said all that. I've got to be real careful about what i tell her!
We eventually got the library - a half hour late. Ah well. It was fun.
