The perfect timer!!!

6 Sep

So I was perusing through Target this morning, holding a giant latte because…well…coffee…and making sure I got things like Toilet Paper and Dog Food, when I wandered into the kitchen section because I have grand designs for our kitchen (and by “grand designs”, I mean just thought-intensive organization to allow Maura both independence and yet learn better eating habits by force.)


There I was, accidentally leaving my giant latte on shelves and having to go back for it, when I found myself in the kitchen utensil section.

I thought “Gee, what I really need is a good timer for Maura, you know, to help her understand how long it takes for something to charge….yeah…but a regular timer won’t do. I need one of those ones they have in all the resource rooms, with the red section that gets smaller…shame they don’t make-HOLY COW IS THAT WHAT I THINK IT IS?”






I scared the other moms with giant Starbuck’s cups as I squealed in delight and grabbed the last timer there in the store. On clearance even! So if you need one of these babies, RUN TO TARGET. And maybe, while running there, grab yourself a giant caffeinated delight. You deserve a treat darling.

    Honestly, I think all parents need this timer at some point. I could use one for Little Man and his shower time or how long it takes him to get dressed or……dammit. I might need to run to Target now.

    That looks like it might work in my house. I’m always setting the kitchen timer for my boys, whether it’s finishing drawing, or ending Ipad time. I had a nice hourglass sand timer, it actually lasted for more than two years! Amazing in our household. So instead of ordering another one online, maybe I’ll just run to target.
