amazing graduation present for your kids (or nieces/nephews)! Every year write them a letter until they're 18, and put a small amount of money in it, then when they graduate - give them all the letters + money!
So going to institute this 'Clean your room' check list for kids! Laminate and use a dry erase marker. =) No more checking and rechecking - "Is my room clean yet, Mom?" Can I PLEASE go out side NOW??" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)
