This week the challenge was to use the teachable moments. I have always had a hard time with this. I am a really big control freak. It has never been an easy thing for me to teach them new things. Recently we have been working with Dakota on vacuuming the floors and he loves it. We only really have rugs so it isn't to much for him to do, and he really does a good job (as good as a 4 year old can). Chey is wanting to earn an allowance, so we have been working on teaching her the value of money.
The challenge for next week is hugs and kisses. This has never been an issue. I grew up in a very affectionate family and that has followed me. I can't help it. When they were little, I loved kissing their chunky thighs and their chubby cheeks. So this week I am just going to enjoy the challenge.
