Hi there Invisible Internet People!
Two questions have come up recently, and short of reading what feels like the entirety of the internet to answer them, I am asking you:
1. How do you hard boil eggs?
Yes, I know, put the eggs in the pot, bring it to a boil. Usually, I put them in, boil it, and turn off the heat for 16 minutes. Then I'm sort of stuck. Usually, I run them under cold water, and then refrigerate them. Peel as needed, and eat. However, I am starting to feel like running all that water is a bit wasteful. So, I'm on the hunt for some other way. Any suggestions
2. More importantly, we are in the middle of a last-ditch effort to potty train Claire. She's willing, in as much as an almost 3 year old is "willing" to do anything you're asking of her. But we are giving rewards - M&Ms. I suspect the candy is starting to lose it's appeal, and I've got a bit of a problem with using food as rewards. Any of you who know me in real life, know that I've struggled with weight and body issues, and I hate the idea of starting her off in life, starting to associate rewards and prizes with food. So what do I do? Start offering trinkets? Stickers lost their appeal a long, long time ago.
So your mission, should you decide to accept it...
