We also have a chore chart that we have started for her to follow daily. This includes such chores as make your bed, straighten the bathroom, and shower daily. It never occured to me that I would have to remind someone to take a shower everyday. Since I'm no longer nine and realized people don't like the stinky person, it is now a chore. For each chore, she gets a star, and then gets rewarded at the end of the week with either allowance, or a fun activity.
I know what some of you are thinking. How hard can it be? She's just nine! Well, how hard can a two year old be? He's just two! Exactly! But if you know me, then you know that I stress over the little things and need to be smacked with some patience.
I know one thing is for sure. Davis is going to have massive withdrawls and such a hard time when he realizes she is no longer here. We really have been having such a fun time. Sunday Spa Night, homemade pasta night, painting. A lot of painting! I have a little Picasso on my hands!
So for now, I'll roll with the punches and still dance around the living room in my own dance party!
