It's my mess and I love it!
|Nanna's cross-stitch for Wombat Girl...how appropriate!|
Most Saturday mornings, the kids are sent to their rooms to tidy up. Wombat Girl in particular has trouble with this. Today I even gave them some help...
The idea is that the task can a bit a overwhelming, so they each follow steps in the card and then when finished, give the card back to me (so I can check their handy work). And after a while (you know, a couple of years), they should be able to tidy their rooms without the prompts.
Despite the assistance, Wombat Girl still had trouble. I wonder why????
|She got up to step 5...|
So much junk!!! This called for the big guns - Mummy!
I took everything off every surface, dusted (with help):
Sorted, re-arranged, threw out.
And then just a mere 3 hours later...
|All the little bits of plastic and knick-knacks back where they belong!|
Now, if only she can keep it like this...
