    WOOHOOO there is so much good going on this house I can barely stand it !!

    Made cinnamon rolls for breakfast and they turned out for the first time !!!

    Made deal with son about room.. I broke it down in segments.. First clothes , then trash, then sweeping and making bed.

    I asked him how long he thougt it would take him to do this.. He said 20 mins we said 45.. I told him if he got it done in 20 mins that he could take a 30 min break and play his DS... if it took longer than 20 mins then he got a 30 min break with-o the DS.. We all agreed and shook on it.. HE DID IT !!!!!! I was so happy I almost started to cry.. He looked at me and said "Mom, why do you always have to be so much like a girl all the time?" LOL

    Phase 2 (as he asked to call it)..

    He says he thinks it will take him 1 hr 20 mins to get all the trash(he likes to sneak food in his room and leaves the rements behind his dresser, under the bed etc...) We said 1 1/2 hrs.. So this time if he gets it done in the time he says, he gets the game for 30 mins plus bonus time.

    A great start to what I hope will be a great weekend :)
