To help her know when March 6 is, I came up with this easy countdown. Every day we take off one clothespin, count the pins, and write the new number.
Our other countdown is for our next Disney Cruise. We are heading in a few weeks to Los Angeles to cruise the Mexican Riviera and for a couple of days in Disneyland. We are excited about this trip because it has no "business meetings" and is all fun. We are also really excited because Mamaw and Granddad (my parents) are coming with us this time!
I had so much fun making this countdown. It is a mini-muffin tin with magnetic circles. Every morning, Hannah takes off one circle to reveal a little treat like a few M&M's or mini-Vanilla wafers. As she gets older, I plan to include clues about our upcoming vacation like the resort we are staying at, if we are going on a cruise, etc.
Hannah loves taking off one circle! She jumps out of the bed in the morning and runs to it first thing. Sometimes the promise of taking off a circle is the only thing to get her out of bed in the mornings. I also made Christmas circles to use as our advent calendar.
We have a big week coming up! We are heading to Oklahoma Christian for Spring Sing to watch my sister in the Freshman Show. Their theme is Blue's Clues. I am also excited that my Gamma girls chose Minnie Mouse this year for their theme. So appropriate!
Our girl is also turning three. For her birthday, my mom is taking Hannah (and me, too!) to the American Girl Store in Dallas. More on that soon!
