And this was his reward:

After he earned 10 stickers, he got to choose between cupcakes, brownies, and cookies. He chose to help me with a cake. We frosted it and all, and this kid was in complete HEAVEN! It was beautiful. We made it right then and there just so he knew his reward was REAL:) It worked.

I wish I knew a long time ago that all you need is a piece of paper and some stickers to get a kid to do something! I was doubtful, but Evan soaked it up and LOVED it. He kept up the progress and earned 20 stickers. He got to pick out a toy from our "$1.00 family store box". He picked out a little spiderman water bottle for his upcoming soccer season. Then...we started clean again. New chart, new stickers, same ol' trick:) I LOVE IT!

Oh, so that's why when I told him to get his shoes on and put on his seatbelt and stuff he looked so confused!! Ha ha. I love that kid. All of my kids have the independent gene, so I forget that others don't. But way to go...charts are great. Logan thrives on charts. That and MONEY!
