3 Year Old Chore Chart!

Since I am now a
mama of a 3 year old...
(AHH!! How did that happen?!)
I thought it was time to get this
chick working around here!
Ha! Actually she is sooo excited to
start her chores!
She likes to call me "step mudda"
and I have to call her "Cinderella"
but whatever works, right?

Here it is!!
Made out of a mini-muffin tin!!!
This cost me $0! Which is good...
for everyone involved!

The circles have magnets on the back...
also the chores inside have magnets on the back,
so they can be switched around and changed.

Getting Tre Dog food,
Help set the table,
Get dressed (she is a pajama girl!),
Help clean (Cinderella),
Pick up toys,
Finish your dinner,
Put your laundry away.

Then after Miss Allikaye,
the 3 year old,
does a chore...
she gets whatever treat is inside!
This girl w.o.r.k.s for candy!
Eventually when she gets older,
we will substitute the candy for $$$!

The muffin tin is perfect for many reasons...
It has 4 chores a day...
Monday thru Saturday...
Sunday is a day of rest!!
Commandment #4 people!

I love this chore chart!!

Here is another little memory of Allikaye's
birthday fun!
Matt and me took her to Build a Bear!!

After she picked out a puppy....

We headed over to get 'er stuffed...

Cleaned that pup up...

Named the pup, Scruffy...
and haven't let go of it yet!!

Have I mentioned how much i love this 3 year old?
I have?
get used to it...
i LoVe HeR!!!!!

Off to be the step mudda!
Clean! Cinderella!
Get to work!
