One fabulous thing about being a parent is all the SUPER DOOPER ideas your kids have. I mean, just the other day I walked into my living room and there it was...the perfect ornament on my tree!
A PAPER AIRPLANE.....now why do I even spend money on decorations when I could just let my kids sit around and throw planes into my tree. They are going to do it anyway!
And while I am on the subject....why didn't I think of this great task when I asked my son to add "buying ice-melt" to my to do list
I mean really, giving $500 to my son sounds like an item that should be moved to the TIPPITY TOP of my priority list.
And for anyone who knows me well, you know what a struggle the LAUNDRY has always been. It just doesn't matter what I tell myself, keeping up with this task is a deed that haunts me. My sister over at Little White Attic gave me a handy list that tells the kids what you will be washing the next day, and then they just throw it in a basket and you start it in the morning. It is posted several places in our home:
However, since I have been slacking a little lately, well, not just a little, but a lot,I did it GREAT for a months or two, and now I am hit and miss (sorry, Lynnae! I am trying!), but not without a reminder of what a great idea it is.......
and yes, that is one of my son's GREAT reminder to me...."We need to start doing this again"...
Aren't kids great? I would have NEVER thought of that!
