Liam has decided that he is ready for his own big boy bike. He has just figured out how to get his buddy Andrew's bike to work and he LOVES riding around it around in circles. He can now go backward and forward and has a wonderfully proud grin on his face as he shows us his new found skills. Since Liam's birthday happens after the summer months, we have decided to indulge him this summer. We made our very first chart so that he has a chance to earn the bike.
We let him know that he can earn a stamp when he doesn't get a time out all day or when he helps out his mama, dada, or brother without complaining. We started the chart on Thursday and he so far has three stamps. (He needs 30 stamps to get the bike). He seems motivated to be a good helper at this point but we will see how it goes. He hasn't yet received a stamp for not getting a time out all day if that tells you anything! It may be a while!
