Times They Are A Changin’

So, today was really bad.  The not napping thing just took it to a whole new level.  The evening was awful.  I think Cordelia is teething.  Charlie was doing everything naughty that he could think of.  I need a new plan of action.  So… I made about 30 magnets, one for each activity that we do (from eating lunch to going to the zoo).  So, I think I’ll have Charlie pick from the magnets what things he wants to do and when.  This will be good for working on recall memory skills because he can look at it at the end of the day and see what he did.  He can even show daddy his day.  Plus I made a few magnets with a picture of his potty on them.  Maybe that will be a little incentive!  I also made some that are just a big star.  These will be for when he does something really special.  Like if he is really helpful with the baby or something.  He can get visually rewarded on his magnet board.

Good idea right?

We’ll try it tomorrow, I’ll let you know how it goes.
