I am sooooooo not a morning person! After I roll outta bed in the morning, let me get a cup of coffee and let me be! I know, I know... not very virtuous... T is the exact opposite; he is ready to rock n' roll in the mornings! While the first part of my mornings consist of nursing Little Sis, checking blogs I follow, and sipping my coffee, I let T watch a little t.v. But honestly because the kitchen is usually still messy from the night before, toys are scattered on the floor, and are beds are a mess... I tend to sit longer than I should! The longer I sit, the more I don't want to get up! And the longer that we are all sitting, the crankier we all become!
So... now that I made myself sound so horrible and lazy, I'll tell you how I plan on changing that! In an effort to get our mornings started right, I created a Tic-Tac-Toe "Chore/ Responsibility" Chart for T ; ) While he is completing his chores, I do mine. It's a win-win! Then I feel somewhat accomplished when I sit down at the computer!
*Update: Just got to thinking of a way to change it up so my dear little one doesn't choose the three "easiest" ones... Print out chores on a card and insert them in a sheet that holds collectible baseball cards (or whatever), that way you can change them up!
