It's been a rough week. After our weekend of partying, Wingnut was down for the count with a flu like bug and the children have followed suit, one by one. This is one of those weeks where I need to be happy with just getting a little done around here.
1) We're still working on potty training Baby Wingnut. We've had good days and bad days, but he is getting the hang of it. Our one big problem is that he is very busy and doesn't like having to stop and use the bathroom.
2) I have caught up on our laundry. Needing to stay home because everyone is sick did leave me time to keep the washer and dryer going.
3) For the summer we switch gears a bit and instead of having the same chore all week the children draw popsicle sticks with the name of a chore written on them for their chore of the day. I have four rotating chores (unloading the dishwasher, dust mopping, vacuuming, and bathroom up-keep) and then we have one popsicle stick with "Free Day" written on it. Obviously, the lucky winner of that stick doesn't have to do a chore that day. I've paired up with Special K, helping her with her chore and teaching her how to do it properly. She's actually a great little helper and I'm enjoying helping her learn how to do the chores around the house.
