Emily's Chores

Emily has wanted a chore pack like Ellie's for months. In the mornings when Ellie would clip on her pack Emily would ask where her chore pack was and I do mean every morning. Well this past weekend I finally made her one. She was so excited Monday morning. Honestly she was more excited then if it was time to open presents. She was running around squealing and showing us over and over. I only put one chore card in it each morning because she is too young to switch her cards around like Ellie does. Here chores are:
Monday: water plant
Tuesday :wipe down table after breakfast (she started doing this by standing in the chair and when I came back in the room she was on the table cleaning)

Wednesday: help mom load the washing machine
Thursday: dust the living room
Friday: help Ellie clean the playroom (I am sure I will spend this time refereeing all of their disputes)
She is so excited to be apart of our chore time and I hope it lasts:)

I was fortunate enough to be able to see the excitement this morning. I have never seen someone so excited to have a chore. What a cutie!
