okay so I was feeling like we had no family routine lately. and by lately I mean when chris came home full time a year ago 😂😂😂 we just never really got into a flow, and I was feeling very all over the place, and being home with the kids more often meant that we have a lot of “chill” mornings. So chill, there were multiple days of me saying things like “grey, did i feed you breakfast?” “Um grey did you brush your teeth?” (Awkward.)
Right. So we needed a plan. enter a chore chart. for grey, or for me? We will never know.
I got these cute custom magnets made, and this cute chart. it has a side for G and a side for M. middle section is days of the week. I got some gold star magnets that he gets each day when he does his daily tasks.
ITS BEEN A FREAKING GAME CHANGER GUYS. grey is sooo much more excited, and self sufficient. He loves moving his magnets to the “done” side and then getting stars each night.
At the end of the week, he gets a treat. It might be ice cream for breakfast, a movie date with mommy or daddy, chick-fil-a, going to the mall, getting a new trash truck, whatever. (Open to suggestions here! I don’t want them to all be food or toy related.)
Do you guys do this for your kids? And anything I’m missing?
