Making your Home Sing Monday: The Chart

Mondays are now, "Making your home Sing Monday" day. You can head over Moms The Word for more MYHSM or to participate in this cool meme.

MYHSM is about sharing and action, and attitude, a motivation... whatever!!! that you are going to do today to make your home sing.

May I introduce you...... THE CHART......!!!!!



Times before we have started doing kind of the same thing. But eventually it has gotten old, and the girl have done the some chores but without the chart..... and the money.....

But today we are starting again, hoping to teach the girls more than just doing jobs at home. Of course, we have the jobs at home they can do everyday (like they have a choice... :)), and then they will get 5 cents for every sticker they get, once they complete the chore. The money will be given to them on saturday night, and then, with that money, we can teach them about tithes, offerings.... at church; and also the value of money, as they will be able to use that money to buy things.

And update on last weeks "Potty training making your home sing monday", well, the home is not singing very well. She waits between times to go in her training unddies, and hates sitting in the potty chair because she says it doesn´t work.... poor baby.... :(

We were giving her jelly beans just for trying once we realize she hated sitting so much, but then we realized that yes, she would sit, but she would wait and pee afterwards. So..... jelly beans are on hold....

What are we doing now? We took off the training panties and put on her real panties. We hope the house won´t be full of paddles, as that is the reason why we won´t give them the puppy they so much want.

Well, ladies, HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!!!

I am constantly trying to figure out the best way to handle chores. I'd love to know what is on that chart! Maybe you could translate into English. : )

I am with Laura. Where did you get the chart? I have been looking at different ideas, trying to figure out what would work best for our family. I am enjoying my visit to blog land and I am only on the first post....missed ya bunches.

Love the chart!! Hope the potty training techniques work well this week! My youngest never liked sitting on the potty either! He trained a little late (I thought), but when he was ready it went like a dream. Have a great week!

That chart is cute! We used to do charts like that. Maybe I should start again too.

Cute chart! My kids always loved charts. I remember when my oldest was four he asked for a chore chart like mine, so I made him one and he loved it!

I remember the potty training days. I tried to stay home as much as possible and yes, they do eventually get trained, as you know!

thank you for joining us today.

We're potty training too. My son will hold it till the pull-ups are on, then he'll do it in them. We make him sit on the potty after lunch everyday, hoping he'll surprise himself and us too, and leave us a little something in there. (#2)

I let him walk around the house in real undies during the day if we're at home. If he pees...no big deal, ceramic tile is easy to mop, at least I don't have carpet to worry about...now that's bad!!

Let me know if you discover something that works!
