We are all about trying to increase Monkey’s independence. He has some chores that he does at home each evening, setting the table and feeding the dogs are the main ones…but we’re always the ones who are providing him with the step by step instructions, not very independent, is it?
So, imagine my excitement when I saw this idea on Kristie Meyer’s blog!
Brilliant, head on over to read it!

Is it sad that I would pay for laminated / plastic placemats like that? I had to draw on Myatt’s to remind him where his cup goes in relation to his plate.
We will be laminating ours. We bought a roll of stuff at Staples that will let us do it without a machine ages ago.
Ohhhh, I wonder if this will work to get Caleb to put his glass back in place during the meal? He prefers to keep it on the edge of the table near his elbow…not good for Mommy’s heart!
