I live by a To-Do list. I make one out almost everyday that I don't work. Laundry, dishes, store, whatever. Well, I got up this morning and we had a lot to do. I wanted the girls help which is like pulling teeth. DING! This is a light bulb moment! I got out my cute pad of paper that I got for my birthday(the girls are not allowed to use it, it would have been gone months ago!). I called Taylor over and asked HER to pick 5 chores that she would like to do. I wrote them out with little to no probing. I drew a picture next to it so she would remember what it was. At the end I asked what the reward should be. She wanted to walk to the park.(it was actually nice today so that worked). I repeated the process with Natalie.
Yes, there was some wasted time, but for the most part they crossed off or X'd each item as they went!
I fixed lunch and then we headed to the park!
Thought I would share! They loved it cause the chores were their ideas! Woot!
