chore chart...

I decided that Avery needs to be helping out around here. After all, I'm always picking up after her, I'm putting away her dishes, I'm doing this and that....
So, we started a chore chart, which we probably should have done years ago. Avery and I talked about the things she could do to help out around the house. Check out our list (did I spell vacumn right? that one always gets me....)


And, now look closely at the item that SHE decided needed to be on the 'chore' list..."COLOR IN PICTURES"...yup, that's my girl. And, wouldn't you know, since this photo was taken, she has already checked off 7 spots for this 'chore' that she's done.....
Hey, at least one of my kids is working around the house....

Well, hey, we should all have a chore that we enjoy doing, don't ya think?! Too cute! I really should get started on a chore chart soon. Right now, she just kind of does whatever we ask her to. =)

Good for you! I remember growing up I had to practice the piano for a half hour every day. Little did my Mom know that when I was supposed to be practicing my drills, I was practicing my favorite pop songs:)

it is vacuum!
that's awesome - i have a feeling she will turn her chores into a showstopping musical! i am curious to see how long this will last.

I can't even imagine annie doing any of that (but i guess it's cause i don't do them either) hahahah

I always have trouble with vacuum too. I never remember which is the double letter.
Around here it's harder on us to remember to remind Sam about jobs he can do for himself than it is for him to do the task.
