Genius Mom Ideas

Max and Sophie each have a responsibility chart that they are supposed to get done every day. They both are supposed (cough, cough) to make their beds, clean their rooms, brush teeth 2X, practice piano for 30 minutes, do their homework and then Max unloads the dishwasher if it's clean, brings up the clean laundry and cleans the family room before bed. Sophie brings down the dirty laundry, practices dance (wink, wink) and cleans the living room before bed.

Pretty standard stuff and sometimes they do it and sometimes they don't and well, frankly it's a constant battle. But, the genius part is this: Sophie and Max each have to read Calvin 2 books per day. So wonderful! They get to read out loud and Calvin gets lots of books read to him. Try it, you'll love it!
The kids remained in their pajamas all weekend as well!
