You should especially do that when there as cuddly and sweet as your 4 year old... :) Sounds like a busy schedule for preschool!

This does not get done everyday.It's more of a guideline for me -pointing me in the right direction. Today 4yo played with his box of animals for hours-stopping to eat,visit guinea-pigs & wrestle with 7yo.Oh & wash front steps with 7yo for fighting.

I was pretty sure that he wasn't managing all that in one day:) But it's good to have that kind of guideline.
LOL Can imagine them on the front steps washing them. If I have children, I'll be taking a page from your book and give them useful things to do when they misbehave!
