Thanks Grandmaman!

Boogs has become very interested in money lately. Well, not money in general. He just wants to have enough to buy a Hotwheels Roaring Dinosaur Track. He wanted to know how he could "get some of Daddy's money" to buy the track. So, we pulled out the Responsibility Chart he received from Grandmaman for his birthday. We tried to get him interested in it when he first got it but he did not want anything to do with it. I really don't know what made him become more interested in it, but I am glad he is. Boogs can earn a quarter every day that he gets at least 3 out of 7 magnets on his chart. It has been two and a half weeks and he is still very into it. The number of magnets required for his quarter may go up soon. He is so proud of himself when he puts each magnet on at the end of the day. Boogs is  much better about keeping his toys in the playroom and picking up after himself during the day instead of waiting to clean up a HUGE mess right before bed. My favorite responsibility is "stop whining". When he starts whining I ask if he is going to earn that magnet and he magically stops whining. Thank you Grandmaman for such a wonderful gift!
