Two weeks ago we started a new reward system in our house. The concept is simple but extremely effective.
- Do something good. Do something helpful.
- The Easter Bunny drops off a reward egg
- More good deeds = more earned eggs
- Surprise Easter morning when the eggs are full of goodies
Include a note to highlight an achievement
Maddy has loved this. She is so excited to showoff her success 🙂
The only problem is…I’m not sure what I’m going to do after Easter!
It never stood a chance. 😊
It’s been over a year. Over a year since Jackie left us and over a year since I posted. This site was left an untouched-digital-monument. It didn’t feel right to post updates of our life after Jackie and it felt even worse to delete it. In the background I started to lay down the foundation for a new blog but that didn’t feel right either.
Today I sat down and saw the future for this site: a new chapter for A Year With Jackie. It felt so right I deleted my work-in-progress, reactivated this site and whipped up a post. After all, Jackie isn’t gone; he resides in our hearts and the lessons we learned during his final months forever changed us.
