Yesterday, I posed a challenge to Punkin. I challenged her to get herself out of bed with her own alarm (no mom-alarm-clock), get herself dressed, fed and out the door with a lunch on time to make it to the bus. All without help from me. This is all in preparation for the event that I have a subbing job on the day that she gets to sleep in.
I have to say that she passed with flying colors. Just knowing that she was going to have to be responsible for herself made it all come together. She even scrambled herself an egg!
As we continually tell her, it's one step closer to a cell phone!
