Delainey's chore chart fun

Since school is no longer in and we aren't rushed to get out of the house, we decided it was time to embark on the world of chores. Lala gave us a lovely wooden Melissa & Doug chore chart for Delainey's birthday so starting chores was easy! We do 3 chores in the morning and 3 at night. I also added a smiley face for less than 3 timeouts during the day. The first week she was so excited to do her chores. Then they lost their luster and it is a little more work to get them done. She is still doing them, but as an incentive if she has less than 5 empty spaces at the end of the week, she gets a field trip to do something fun. Last Friday we had our first reward field trip and we went to this festival called Kids Fest. 
We started the morning with Krispy Kreme doughnuts since it was National Donut day and then headed to the festival to do different activities and play on the bounce houses. 

We explored different types of vehicles, met clifford and curious george and did unlimited rides on the 2 bounce slides (one was a wet slide so we just got our clothes wet). We ended the fun with a shaved ice and then headed home for some rest. 

On another note, Blakely is growing up too fast! She is already 10 weeks old :( Not such a baby anymore. Delainey has been wanting to hold B more lately and I was able to snap a few good pics! Blakely was so precious sleeping with her hands folded.

  1. Nothing really beats the rewarding feeling of going out for fun, after being a good kid and doing all those chores. Haha! Well, Delainey looks like she had a really great time with all those activities. I'm pretty sure she's motivated enough to do more chores from then on. Thanks for sharing, Jamie! All the best to your whole family! :)
