Get some STARS!!!

School officially started yesterday and I am pretty sure this will be a good year for my daughter.

She got 3 stars on her first day and that gave me an idea.  I actually saw this before from another mommy and I thought, why not do it now while it’s only the start of the school year.

So I made this little charts and numbered them.  Then I asked my daughter what she wanted for a prize for every 10 stars she gets from her class.

For the 10th star, she wants to have a scoop of ice cream.  For the 20th star, a tumbler of popcorn!

For the 30th star, she’s getting Potato Corner French Fries.  For the 40th star, a Happy Lemon drink of her choice.

For the 50th star, J. Co Donuts. For the 60th star, she will get to play at Tom’s World.

For the 70th star, she’s going to Kidzoona at Galleria!

We haven’t actually finished it yet.  Of course, these are just small rewards for the stars she will be getting.  It inspires the kid and it makes her look forward to a little something every now and then.

When we were doing this, it was actually fun, because I can see her giddyness and excitement while she was thinking of the rewards she wanted.

Maybe you’d like to do it for your kids too! It’s so easy to make as well!

When Disaster Strikes

This is how it looked like in our room tonight!

Kids’ toys, books, crayons, and what nots all over our bedroom floor!  It took me a few hours before I finally sorted everything in their own places! 

And now my back is aching like crazy.  When it touched the bed, I couldn’t move anymore.  This is what I get from spending a whole day with my 2 kids!  Oh well, I’d rather feel like this than not spend quality time with them.

By the way, look at how happy they were with all their things strewn all over!

Good night everyone!

My funny kids

Last night, it was sleeping time already, so I went out of the room to get milk for the 2 kids.  About 3 minutes after, I went back to the room with 2 bottles of milk, only to find out that they have doodled and were still doodling and drawing lines some walls with their crayons!!!

Daphne’s holding a blue crayon and Denise has black in her hand!

I told them to stop immediately and asked them to clean the writings on the walls as punishment.  I gave them each a piece of wet tissue. 

A few minutes into the scrubbing, the kids were enjoying it already.  I even stopped Denise from doing it, but instead she got angry with me and still proceeded with scrubbing.

How funny my kids are!  They didn’t take my punishment as punishment per se, but they turned it into a fun activity.  Here are some pictures from last night!
