Ok, so yesterday my Dear Son 9 was on the phone with a little friend from school. He was trying to set up a playdate and a movie date with his friend and include his twin brother.
His friend was asking him about certain dates, since the original one didn’t work out with his friend’s mom, and my ds said (and I quote here) “wait a minute, I have to check the calendar.”
Oh my, did that bring a smile to my face. He wasn’t calling to me in the other room while I was reading a story to his sister, he was checking the family calendar to see if there was something going on!!
I guess this flying stuff is beginning to “wash” into his mind too!! I’ll hold onto that moment for now, and keep at this until they all “get it” and start flying on their own.
FlyLady here: I am often asked to name my favorite tools that help you FLY. At the top of the list is the FlyLady calendar.
It is a working calendar that you place in a prominent spot in your home. Make it part of your evening routine to have everyone in the family update it. This is also when you check it to see what you need for the following day or the rest of the week.
