Last week I bought a two-minute hourglass for the girls to use when brushing their teeth. Mostly for Elegant, who has been known to spend exactly two seconds on the task and then declare herself done. Surprisingly, she's never had a cavity.
As I suspected, Elegant has been FASCINATED by this new tool. She holds the hourglass approximately six inches from her eyes in order not to miss a single dropping grain of sand. If we're lucky, she'll actually move her toothbrush around the inside of her mouth during this time.
Yesterday, Graceful came into the bathroom and started talking with Elegant, who was in the middle of brushing her teeth/watching time pass. Elegant very carefully turned the hourglass sideways to stop time, talked with Graceful for a moment, turned the hourglass back up to restart time, and then continued brushing her teeth / watching time pass.
