One Simple Way to Avoid Meltdowns at the Grocery Store

By | February 8th, 2018|Parenting|

This post is sponsored by Walmart. All opinions are my own. We’ve all been there. We think we’ve got this parenting thing all under control and for a brief moment we have a lapse of judgement and think it will be “fun” to take the littles to the store. Or at least we think it won’t be THAT bad. When my boys were little, trips to Walmart or the grocery store literally did me in. There was the time when I had all 4 of my boys with me and we traveled to the nearest Walmart which was 40 minutes from home.

Football Printable Chore Charts for Kids

Football season is here and even though my boys don’t play football, they follow their favorite teams very closely. And with the big game coming up soon, I thought I would create a little bit of motivation for them to help me get the house clean, but in a fun way. These football printable chore charts for kids are the perfect way to motivate your kids to get a “Touchdown” and win a prize, while helping with their responsibilities around the house. And the prize might just be being able to watch the game now that the house is clean. 😉  Football Printable Chore Charts for Kids My boys need all the motivation they can get when it comes to cleaning. I can’t tell you how much grumbling happens when I ask them to pick up or do their chores. You would think that I was asking them to do something WAY worse than just washing a few dishes or, you know, putting their underwear in the hamper and not on the floor. It’s SOOO hard to do! […]
