Zen and the art of....

getting your kids to sit still for more than an 1/8th of a meal

we've tryed extra snacks, sticker rewards, praising, pleading, distracting with toys, making their absolute favorite,

and my kids wont sit still for beans, which let me tell you, makes for fun outings, we've given up going anywhere for meals. which saves a bit of money, but darn it , sometimes i just don't wanna clean the mess up.

do any of you lovley bloggers out there have ANY ideas on how to keep the monkeys at the table. we've tried everything from time outs to early bed times, to extra special treats after if they do sit, the most they'll do is about 5 minutes. and then they wanna go go go go go.
