So, I’ve implemented our summer plan. I do the same thing pretty much every summer, typically with a different focus. This summer our focus is going to be on kindness. My personal focus is going to be on consistency.
One of the things that drives me a little batty every summer (and in every day of my life) are the repeated questions. I don’t mind questions, I try to encourage my kids to ask me questions, but there are a few that get asked over and over with a certain degree of whinyness that I just go bonkers. And it doesn’t help that these questions are often asked of me two inches from my face at 6:00 am, thereby scaring me out of sleep and out of my mind.
To try and combat these two problems, I made the following documents and posted them on my bedroom door. Several people requested them so I thought I’d post them here. I got my kids to help me think up what should go on these. Lunchmeat really wanted to add the occurrence of Zombies to the “Should I wake up the Parents” sheet and was irritated when I didn’t. I told him Zombies fell under the “Bad Guys” category.
For those of you who saw the pictures of these signs on Instagram you will see that I have removed the images from the “Should I wake up the Parents” sign. I got the pictures off a clip art site so they are not my own so I felt it would not be right to re-post them here. Sorry!
Do you have a “Summer Plan”?
Do you have a particular focus in your “Summer Plan”?
What questions would you add to the “Answers to Common Questions” sheet?
Did I miss anything you would add to the “Should I wake up the Parents” sheet?
