You would think as a teacher I'd be pretty good with encouraging responsibility, but when it come to chores around the house I consistently fail. I've tried computer charts, magnetic charts, with money, without money, but after about, hmmm, 2 days things fall apart. I love Amy's idea of using popsicle sticks to get the jobs done and I may just mix it with her screen time tickets too cause that would totally motivate my kiddos. Oh and there will absolutely be a "mommy chore choice" stick. Love THAT!
Back to school time really puts a snafu into my blogging time. It's hard to find time to get the content out there and knowing that content is king makes it a bit stressful. I enjoyed this post about "How to Write a Blog Post in 15 Minutes". Great tips to managing my blog while going back to work!
This summer I installed the StumbleUpon toolbar and have been stumbling my way around with it. Reading StumbleUpon in Five Steps made it much clearer how the whole thing works and how I should be making it work. By the way I'd love to have some more people to stumble with so check me out on StumbleUpon.
If you are a married mom then this Letter to the Husbands is for you. I could totally relate to everything. Maybe I should print it out and leave it lying around the house for my hubby to find.
