Here’s a sample checklist for the curious…

Thanks to everyone who commented on my recent post about how checklists are making life a little easier around our household. A few of you asked for a copy of the checklist, so here’s the morning routine. Bedtime available as well (fyi – I’m using ‘Go to the can’ instead of ‘Use the washroom’ because it’s language the boys like and therefore will respond to!)

Each item has a corresponding box to check off, I just couldn’t reproduce it in the blog.
