He got $20 for his birthday. I let him spend it yesterday as he saw fit. He spent it all on the aquarium. He now has a skeleton in the water with his head bobbing up and down with air bubbles. It was something he really wanted, so now its his. There are other things he is wanting for it, so I told him he is going to have to earn it. He has a responsibility chart now that we just got about a week ago but never put up. He put it up yesterday and have been marking it up ever since. Today, besides going to church and his school sing program, he:
- took out trash
- replaced trash bag
- brushed teeth
- said please and thank you for meals
- actually ate his meals
- DID DISHES!!!!
- cleaned up his room
- made his bed
- sorted through some of his tapes and sold his excess to the neighbor for her grandkids. :)
We just lost one of the fish. :( We lost the only "gold" goldfish. (he has a white one, and two black and gold). We gave it a burial at sea, and he was sniffling. He has been overfeeding, so I think they are pooping too much. I told him not to be surprised if we lose others, and to slow down on the feeding. I know they always look hungry, but they will be ok.
God Bless, and thank God for responsibility charts. :)
