You know those things that you repeat time and time and time and time and TIME AND TIME again to your children, only to have them not do what you ask? For us, as much as I hate to admit it, that thing was flushing the potty. Why? Why do they get the whole potty training thing almost all the way and then space out on the flushing?! I don't know. I don't have answers for that great mystery of life. But what I DO know is I got SO TIRED of asking them to flush the potty, so tired that I designed a little reminder, printed it out, framed it, and put one up in each of our bathrooms so I merely had to POINT to the sign when needed.
Once I got started I decided we needed a couple others, and the wash hands was born. I am a washing hands freak, especially since germs spread like wildfire in a family of six and hand washing is the best line of defense and also something my kids never seem to remember either. Brushing teeth followed closely behind, not that they forget, but because they are forever trying to get out of it by claiming they are "too tired". Again, there's no argument now, just pointing with a stern look, like hey, that dinosaur says brush your teeth so you'd better DO IT. That kind of look. An I mean business look.
I've had a bunch of people ask me if I can make these sweet little printables available on the site, and I finally got around to doing it! All you have to do is click the photo below to see the printable pdf. I hope these are as successful for you guys as they have been for us! Now get to work on your stern look! xoxo
