The Phone Call

If you read anything I write you probably know that my grandsons “have my number”. Apparently, even though it is September 6th their brain is on Halloween. The last time I was at their home there was dilemma over doing chores. Their parents don’t “pay” them for doing chores, it is part of being a responsible member of the family and I respect that. I had a discussion if their parents to see if there was anything we could do to help the situation as it has become a source of contention.

Their Mom called me today and said “We discussed the chores and we think we have a plan. They must do their chores, that is given. If they do them with a good attitude it seems like maybe we could reward them somehow. Well, we thought maybe the reward could come from you guys.”

I said ” We can sure try and help. What kind of things do you want to use as rewards?”

“I will let the boys call you after school and discuss it.”

Well they called and they are earning smiley emoji squeeze balls and when they have ten of them they get a prize. The prize has to be something the whole family can enjoy and it can’t be food. They informed me that they were sending me an email with some excellent choices for prizes.

Check out what they want in their prize box.

The Basic Idea

Here's the premise, we have do something differently to get the chores done and have a happy little home and family.

Prize Number One

I guess they want their mailbox decorated for Halloween. This was their first choice.

Festive Bathroom?

I guess if I were a little boys who liked scary things, this might be appropriate. I am beginning to wonder if their Mom checked out the email.

I sense a theme here.

This is more like one I might pick. Maybe they didn't have any scary ones.

Outdoor Spider

This is apparently 8 feet tall and goes out in the yard.

What do you think?
