The other day, M came home from school and was buzzing with excitement about dusting! I hate dusting with a passion. So, being the amazing mommy I am, I have *graciously* allowed her to take over the light dusting. We brought up the concept of chores with M and let her pick out 5 tasks that she thought wanted to add to her list of responsibilities.
The hubby and I have decided that she is old enough to have both family member responsibilities AND chores. What is the difference? At our house, "family member responsibilities" are tasks that are expected for being of part of the family. Examples from our house: putting your dishes in the sink, picking up your toys and helping feed the dogs.
We have found another perk to "paid chores!" When M started kindergarten, she also started requesting a lot of new toys. We have told her that if she wants new toys, she will have to earn money to buy what she wants. My busy little helper bee is so excited to start chores!
Today, I had her help me design her chore chart. It came out more adorable than I expected- so I thought that we would share it with you!
