    Just wanted to share…To make writing little love notes to my special people I write to each person on the date of their birthday for each month. So if their birthday is August 13th I write them a note on the 13th of every month:)

    I see that you have added new chores for your kids, mine are similar in age to yours (10, 8 & 5). Can you tell me what chores they do, I am currently looking for some new ideas. We started the Accountable Kids program last month and I just wanted to add an additional chore for each one.

    I love your blog!
