"Kate - go upstairs and pick up the books on your bedroom floor...!"
"I CAA-AAAN'T - my feet hurt...I'm hungry...etc."
Fill in the blank with any lame excuse you can muster...
So our new family rule is...NO MORE CAN'T! And to remind us all of this I've created this little printable that now hangs in each of the kids' rooms, in the bathroom & in the kitchen...
"CAN'T LIVES ON WON'T STREET"
I love this phrase...firs,t because I thinks it's entirely true...it's not that you can't do it, it's that you won't do it...second, because it's easy to remember...my kids are now saying it to each other...mission accomplished.
I made it in a bunch of different colors...here are they are...please feel free to download and share...(the link should be fixed now...;))
