Teaching kids their phone number can be tedious. But it's important for them to know. Especially if you are Galina and like to run off and get lost. I read a clever tip somewhere: teach them through song. Use the tune of "Camptown Races Sing This Song, Do Dah, Do Dah". I tried it and after two trips in the car they almost had it. And you'll have it in your head for at least 8 hours, guaranteed.
