Last Friday on the first day of summer vacation, I decided that we needed some sort of plan to get through the summer. The boys were fascinated by the signs that started popping up around the house.
Seems to be working at keeping both me and the kids more organized.
Super Nanny would be proud.
Every time someone asks if they can do computer or television, I simply say "Check the schedule"
Yes, there's more TV than is recommended, but with it off for over 7 hours in the day, I can justify. When I was little, I sat around all day, every day watching TV.
This is the plan for "school work" listed above. It as pretty cool that I took advantage of it yesterday and taught Noah how to do large math problems with carrying numbers.
They are both looking forward to craft day today
After a MAJOR battle with Son #1 about wiping once again last Friday, and again about washing his hands, I decided to put up a new sign in the bathroom.
He is still protesting (which I think is gross and don't understand what the big deal is), but he's doing it...all because the sign is telling him to.
I just wish he would do it because it is the sanitary thing.
I am quite sure more signs are going to start popping up as need be.
I am loving the schedule. It is making ME be honest as well and not letting me sit around in my pajamas. I have to be showered and dressed by the time they start school work at 9:00.
Their favorite thing on the schedule? The chore bucket if you can believe it.
