If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you know that I am always changing up the way I manage my children’s responsibilities.  Sometimes we have no responsibilities, sometimes we have more.   Sometimes I reward them, sometimes I don’t.  I find it so hard to be consistent with any system I come up with.  And I am becoming ok with that.  Kids like change, right?

Recently I decided for the summer I would try daily chores that were done right after breakfast.  Our mornings are not rushed so why not start the day off with a straight house?  Instead of coming up with some teachery creative way to display this, I just made each of them a list.  I drew pictures for Graham’s (no laughing please).

My kids were so into this.  They loved checking their items off.  Of course Abbey with her bed head had to have a list too.  No one got paid in anything more than a hug or a high five and it felt great.  I don’t know how long it will last but it worked yesterday and we will try it again tomorrow.
