A Monty Python style of parenting

Mother and Kindermusik Educator Darcie Brown wrote this morning about how she's using the "Ministry of the Silly Walk" clip (scroll down to watch it) to get her preschooler, Xander, towards the door.

"Xander requested to see your Silly Walk Kwip again today. He quite enjoyed it and I've used the concept a couple times to motivate him to get moving - 'Let's do a silly walk to the door!'

Heh heh."

That little laugh at the end is the laugh of a clever and creative mother. Xander also leaves "installation" art pieces around the house.
