sticker chart

I've never been a huge fan of bribery for good behavior.
I've always expected my kids to be
good...for nothing (sorry).

But I'm tellin' ya...
this Lucy girl is a piece of work.
No amount of punishment
(even her beloved Dora being taken...gasp)
usually doesn't deter her from naughty behavior.

So my friend Patty (who also has a precious Fu stinker) suggested a sticker chart.
Ahhh, yes...the classic, last-resort-I've-tried-everything-else,
sticker chart.

Why didn't I think of that earlier??
Lucy and stickers go together like peas in pods.

And I was quickly reminded in my spirit that God is
a huge Giver of rewards for obedient behavior
so why the heck shouldn't I do the same??

So today was our first official day of

Oh my,
I hate to speak too soon, but it has worked like a charm!!

And when Miss Sassy Pants gets her sticker chart
filled up,
she gets a special prize from Wal Mart!

Oh and I would show you a picture of the coveted chart
but ummm,
I was in such a desperate hurry to put the
thing together that it's lacking any amount of creativity
so I won't bore you.

But to this ornery little girly,
it's priceless!!

It is NOT bribery, Lori. It is a REWARD system. Sounds a lot better.

heheh, Lori, this is a great post, but I did notice a small typo....When you said, "Lucy and stickers go together like pees in pods,". Well, I may be wrong, but I think you meant, "peas". :)
