*Must Read* 5 Amazing Life Lessons I learned from my 3 year old.

One of my main concerns as a parent is to make sure I am teaching my children correct principles. There is so much they need to learn, during the fleeting years I have them in my home, that at times it is almost overwhelming. And yet, perhaps, I was given these children not just to teach, but to also learn from. Children have a wisdom born of innocence that I think we can all learn from. When I stop to think of all the lessons my small children have taught me in the last few years, I am truly humbled. Here are the TOP 5:

BusyKid - chores and allowance simplified with one AMAZING app!

This summer I started to get really tired of our old chore charts. We write everything down on a paper or clip board, but it never quite gets tracked like it should and I always have a kid telling me later about how they completed a chore when I don’t think they did.
