I agree, you are in the right, she will never learn if you just replace it! I would maybe get her a new one for Christmas, or a Birthday present, if there is time and money between so she has time to learn the lesson!

We already incorporated the bath time every other day! It helps, a little!

Kaylyn wore her dress shirt with her shift/jumper dress (Uniforms)! But was supposed to wear her gym suit! Oh well, she was not the only one wearing the wrong uniform the first day!

So to confuse things a bit more, NOW, Hello Kitty is a cat, but personified!

This is the one I want!
You having twins could help you too! You could say something like:
Lets see which one of you can get ready for school the fastest?
(Now, if one is faster then the other, encourage the other one by telling him that practice helps, so he should still try! He could win soon, if he just tries and practices!)
I don’t offer rewards to Kaylyn when she wins (because I always let her win!) It is the satisfaction that she is faster then me that satisfies her!
I am waiting on the explanation on why she has whiskers and pointy cat ears!
My guess would be then that her whole family are Furries!
Well, I really could not complain to the teacher, the other kids in her class does it!
It is four things
1. writing her numbers from 1-100 (She has had to do this every night since school started except last Friday, this is what takes the longest! If I read the note right, she will have no homework on Fridays!) It literally took 2 hours on Monday and Tuesday to do them! An hour on Wednesday, and 45 minutes on Thursday! :/
2. writing 6 words twice each! (This takes 5 minutes if that!)
3. reading the same book every night! (We read any way!)
4. practice Hail Mary’s!!!
It really is just trying to adjust to having homework again! It also would help if I can get off earlier than I do too!

Make getting ready to leave a game! Say something like,
“I bet I can beat you to the car?”
“How high can I count before you get your shoes/coat on?”
“I bet I will get to your backpack and lunch boxes before you can!”
“I bet I can get my shoes/coat on before you can!”
These helped last year, I need to start trying them again!!!

I have to do homework with my daughter, and I don’t get home most days until 6 pm! I have to cook too! Her bedtime is 8 pm so that don’t leave a whole lot of time for the homework that seems to take 2 hours! She had been going to bed late because of the homework! So, if anyone has good suggestions, I would be interested!

Looks like you have a plan! I like the balloon idea too!

My Mother inlaws birthday party!
We put canopies up to shield the sun! Suddenly, it got really really dark, so we decided to bring the cake out and serve it in hopes to beat the rain! Just as I got the candles lit, it started to rain lightly! As we started singing, it started raining a little harder, so we were singing in the rain!
MIL had a great time still!

Have you tried something like this (would not work for us):
I saw an organizer that had baskets in different colors that I want so bad! And it was on wheels, and had like 10+ baskets on it! I just can’t seem to find it now! :/

Don’t think about it as Not working, or Not contributing!
1. What would you have to pay some one to Nanny your kids?
2. The average price to clean a house with us is $100, so how much would you be paying to have someone clean your house? (Anywhere from $100 to $400, depending on how often you have someone come clean!)
3. Unless you get a housekeeper, which can cost more a week then just the house cleaners, how much would you pay someone to do your laundry?
4. Personal chef?
the list goes on and on and on……….
You contribute a lot more than you may or may not realize!
(Wow, looking at this list, why am I working???? Oh yeah, to put my daughter through private school!)
Kaylyn is not sure yet! She likes seeing her friends, but she is scared of the teacher (new rules, new expectations!)!
I do a mix of different berries,
I like to send a healthy snack or side for my daughter, and for drink water!
This year Kaylyn gets free lunches! So I really only “need” to send a snack! But on the occasion they serve something that she does not like, I need to send something for her to eat!
Congrats, and good luck on the next one, should be smoother now!
Heights, spiders, heights, going across bridges over water, heights, and the ceiling fan falling off the ceiling! (I don’t know why for the ceiling fan, I just fear it will some day!) And yes, I have an extreme fear of heights, but I over come my fear of heights when I go on roller coasters (For my niece, nephew, and daughter)!
Once, I froze at the top of a normal height playground slide, it took a lot of coaxing to get me down, I was so struck with fear it was not funny! People laugh when I say I am afraid of heights!

I am! All of it was weighing heavily on me! Now I feel 20 pounds lighter!
