We have the kids clear their plates. Every night I would look at Holly and say put it in the dishwasher. She would get up, take the seven steps into the kitchen and say, "Dishwasher or sink?". I started telling her that she needed to use her mind. A couple of weeks later she figured it out on her own and she proudly proclaimed, "Mommy, I losing my mind!". Just for fun we make her say it often.
Did you know that these are your glashes. On day Holly come up to me pointing to her eye lashes and said, "Mom, Jesus gave me my glashes!". I had her repeat herself so I could tell exactly what she said. Yes GLASHES .
And these are your armhits. One day when Holly was taking her shower I told her don't forget to wash your armpits and left the bathroom. When I came back to check on her she gave me the run down of everything she washed including her ARMHITS.
