About the same time that Emily started middle school, these lists started popping up around the house. Of course, always checked off and complete.
To do list Dec. 21, 2011
1. Take shower
2. Get dressed
3. Dry hair w/hair dryer
4. Pack back pack
5. High pony tail
6. Make lunch
7. Put on tennis shoes
8. Coat (not checked off, but I assume she put it on and left)
10. White day-don't forget anything
12. Happy B-day Ry!
13. Is Ry going to school? No (she found the answer and wrote it down)
14. Tidy up room
15. Friend (named) and Friend (named) are coming over!
17. Brush teeth
18. Ear rings
At night she sets her alarm, and in the morning wakes up on her own. She has her week of outfits planned and hanging in her closet. She is usually ready to go by 7:00am. When she was walking to school, she left at 7:2o (we only live a few blocks from school). Now, because I drive (it's winter after all) we leave around 7:35.
What can I say...sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree.
