I’ve been realizing lately that my best To-Do List Reminder is our kids’ memory. I’ll explain: all I need to do, if I want to be held to really doing a task, is to tell the kids we are going to do a certain task/adventure and they will not forget. So last night I told them we would wash the van. Needless to say, I have been hounded by questions about who is washing which specific part of the van, who is in charge of the sprayer, and various other important car-washing questions.
So me and my little monkeys…er…kids are off to enjoy the day (and each other) while getting some work done.
