James was looking through my recipe drawer (which is chocka full of recipes I have pulled out of magazines or photocopied etc etc) and tucked in amongst them all was a pile of behaviour/tick charts I'd had for the kids when they were young. James must have been 8 and Emma 5. How cute!! I'm so glad I kept them and he found them cause we all had such a laugh looking at them. Here's one of them. They have a row titled 'If naughty - money off & reason' (this is money off pocket money as you probably realise). We were laughing and James and Emma thought it was so funny.
Some reasons on other charts were:
20c off naughty in supermarket (both)
20c off crying and being silly about nothing (Emma)
50c off for being so rude and naughty to Mum (James)
50c off for getting out of control (Emma) - I liked this one LOL.
And I like this one -
40c off hit me twice in shoe shop (Emma). Too funny.
On this chart they both have $1.20 off on Wednesday for hurting each other. They must have had a huge fight. LOL.
Anyway they bought back some great memories and a nice family discussion reminiscing about those days which were not so long ago.
