On My To-Do List: Make A To-Do List
Well, this seemed to work. Jada, who is normally one to play first and work second, set about hacking away at her to-do list as soon as she woke up the next morning. By 9, she had done all her stuff and egged Aaron on to do his stuff. Not bad for a flighty little girl who usually can't remember chore instructions three minutes after they've been given.
We need to go back and work on thoroughness and quality, since the goal in life isn't just to get stuff done but to do it right (self, are you listening?). Still, having, writing, and keeping a to-do list seems to have worked. So don't think we aren't going to keep going to that over and over again in the weeks and months to come.
