Let me clarify: we don’t have chore charts around here. I’m not against chore charts, mind you. I’m just… not “there” yet. Lacy’s probably old enough to have one, but I haven’t found the time/motivation to make one that suits our farmily.
But lately, she’s been cleaning. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me! A few days after Valentine’s Day, I cleaned the kids room and Lacy was SO HAPPY that she’s cleaned it every day since. I made her a little graph and told her she can color in another space every night if she cleans her room before bedtime. When all of the spaces are colored in, she gets something she wants very, very dearly. A “Tangled” coloring book.The only downside to her cleaning is that she’s noticed that her mother’s room is… ahem… less than Tangled Coloring Book Worthy.
So what does she do?
