A couple of weeks ago, in anticipation of the start of school and new routines, I made these cool charts for the boys.
Based on something I had seen in Family Fun magazine, I listed out responsibilities for morning and bedtime, left spaces for "write-ins" and covered them in clear contact paper. Then I sat back to bask in my success. My darlings were going to be so excited: their very own place mats, customized lists and a chance to use the DRY ERASE markers! I could see the year stretching out ahead of us in perfect order, my little men contentedly checking off their lists without complaint. ::SIGH:: They were going to LOVE them. And they did!
For about four days.
