Serious question here- How often do you pick up toys?
I had all of Michael’s birthday gifts stacked neatly on the mantle and that lasted 3 days before Hurricane Michael came through. Now I am pretty proud that it lasted that long but I know that if I pick it up he will pull it all down tomorrow and I hate doing things over and over again. My approach is to just leave it there until I really need to pick it up because he will find something else to play with. Meaning when Michael gets annoyed enough and does it himself.
Another question- When did your child start picking up?
I am betting that the day Michael starts to understand that he needs to pick up his toys is the day that I get my rear in gear. I hope that the day I am supposed to work on that was not before a year old because I can only work on one thing at a time. I have been teaching him to share and Mommy is pretty gosh darn proud of him!
Final question- What helped get your child to pick up?
Do you think I can get him to do my chores for money already? Maybe candy? HAHA! I can’t wait for the day that he is ready to earn some cash! No, I did not have a child to be a slave driver but I can’t say that the perks aren’t nice. 🙂
