Some people nest. I make charts.
As a new school year bites at our heels, I’m starting to focus on the things that need to happen to get us out the door on time. I’m also thinking a lot about the things I’d like to train our kids to do on their own. (See my “Good Morning” Chart)
This chart is a little different. It’s been waiting for our cherubs nearly every day for the past week or so and they have really liked the direction it offers. Here’s how we’re using it:
- Mom is out for a walk when kids wake up; using this gives a focus to their activities and prevents TV time
- Mom and dad are sleeping in and want the kids to get going on chores right away in the morning
- Mom is doing her Bible Study (or fill-in-the-blank) and doesn’t want to be interrupted
