My Chart is here!

Kylie West - Thursday, August 08, 2013
I was losing my sanity because my daughter would not get ready for school.

The frustrating part was our routine had not changed in 4 or so years through daycare, then kindy and then starting school. Moo loved all these places but just got overwhelmed by what she had to do to get ready. I would find her drawing, or downstairs building Lego instead of getting ready, so I knew I had to think of a different approach.

I fruitlessly searched for appropriately motivating morning routine charts but nothing suited what I wanted. (I am just not a sticker chart kinda gal)

So one morning I had a thunderbolt thought ... appeal to her creative side. By using visuals instead of my cranky voice, Moo was getting ready...independently. We play games with the chart. I have a shower and she tries to see how many smiley faces she can achieve before I get out. I cheat a little and have a slightly longer shower, knowing that Moo is out there trying to get lots of smiley faces.

I am now being told my my gorgeously dimpled little girl that I would not have My Chart if it wasn't for her.
Hmmm...pretty sure I would have a few less wrinkles too!! Kids...You have to love them!
