It takes about 1 minute to sing the ABCs. So lately, rather than asking my kids to “give me a minute” or “wait one minute”, I've been asking them to sing the ABCs.

Today my youngest had to get some shots, which is never easy. I told him to sing the ABCs. Not only was he thinking about the ABC song, everyone, including the nurse, was singing it. By the time the song was done, he was all done with his shots.

I must confess that sometimes I sing the ABCs to help me get through some stressful times as well. Next time won't you sing with me!
