In case you haven’t noticed from this blog’s header, my daughter is a big tutu fan. Actually, she is a fan of all things dress up. I often find her in my closet trying on my shoes, bracelets… even by bras. Yes, the girl has a fascination with those too. Sofia will dress up to do her homework, clean up (she wears her Cinderella costume for that one) and anytime she feels she wants to “be more lady.”
A few years ago, I bought chore/responsibility charts for my kids. After a few weeks, I noticed that the kids fought to have certain “chores” assigned to them. Really? Can it be this easy?
Well no, but Alex really liked feeding the cats and Sofia used to beg to help me do the dishes. And so, for about two years now, Alex has been feeding the cats consistently –the cats actually circle around him when it’s time to eat.
A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon Nudge Tees on twitter. They have really cute t shirts for kids that empower them and celebrate their achievements (you know… when they finally decide to help around the house). Getting your kids to help can be such a struggle; I practically have to threaten them with throwing their toys away in the garbage when they refuse to pick up.
Upon receiving the t-shirts, Alex said: “Look! I am the official of feeding the cats! It says on my shirt!” And my girl… well, just check out the pictures below because as you see… everything is done better in a tutu.
I think they would make a really cute gift for kids that have everything.
As you can see, he really feeds his “two” cats.
Disclosure: I was not compensated to write this post. I did choose two complimentary t-shirts from Nudge Tees but I was not asked to write a post. All opinions are my own.
