{soap and toothpaste no more]

i think i've mentioned already how well our charts are working

i'm not here to mention that again

i'm here for something else

a change


this is how the sink in the main bathroom looked every day up until a week ago

we have tried many things to get the kids to remember to wipe the sink

nothing has worked

until now

seriously, i can't believe how easy it was

the kids charts only go for three weeks

about a week ago it was time to print new ones

i simply added 'wipe sink' to the chart

alia in the morning

jono before bed



so stinkin' easy

they do it every time

and the sink shines !

ok ... that's a stretch ...

but it is free of soap and toothpaste

and that is enough

more than enough !!


speaking of kids and chores ...


i wrote a two part series a while back sharing my thoughts on the subject ...


if you're interested, the two black and whites of my dad as a kid are linked to those posts


as for me ... i'm heading to bed

i'm future dating this to be posted tomorrow while we are at a wedding

and then spending the weekend with grandma and grandad

a happy weekend to you all

i hope it's

I just love those flashes of brilliance! The smack your head, duh! ones! I went back and looked at your chart post, it made me wonder what the charts look like now, with marks on them.......Have a fun weekend!
