30 minute life skills dash

The kids have chores.  I’m sure it would work much better if I actually consistently enforced them!

I’m trying a new technique though.  The 30 minute dash.

And the race is on! 

I start handing out assignments like crazy!  Although I think I’m going to modify this more by printing up little cards for them to draw from a bowl.  Make it even more fun!  And less mommy pressure.

Um.  Trevy’s supposed to be wiping the music toys not playing with them!

Lucky he’s cute!

It’s a big deal for me that my kids learn how to contribute.  That being in a family means being part of a team.  And a team works together!  Even Trevy.  Cause I’m mean like that.

I need the HELP!

And we can’t afford a maid…
