This article by Mrs G is a terrific reminder to stop doing everything for our kids. The kids are happy to accomplish things, we don't have to do it all alone, and they learn their "life skills." And here is a cute way to do some photo chore cards. I did this when Aiden was little and he loved it. Why am I not doing it right now?!? I'm thankful I was reminded of this and will be putting it back into practice very soon...I hope.
