Congratulations Nicole! You have won a $25 voucher to spend at Little Billies. I’m sure your kids will enjoy their special chart, whatever you choose! (Please note that birthday messages and general chit-chat comments were not counted below. Only the 24 legitimate entries were counted). I wish I could have given more away! I’m heading over to Little Billies now to purchase a morning chart to go with our evening one…!
It’s my birthday!! Getting presents is fun, but I think I get more of a buzz from giving them. So what better time for a give away?!
I don’t know about you, but the late afternoon is the most challenging time of day for me with the kids. My three year old no longer naps in the middle of the day so she fades by about 4:30pm, just as my ten month old hits grumble o’clock. Navigating the stretch from dinner time to bed time can be treacherous! My hubby usually makes it home just in time to kiss the kids goodnight, but I’m sailing solo until then.
The evening routine chart from Little Billies has been a great help since we received it recently. (As a teacher turned SAHM I’m a big fan of schedules!) The magnetic chart helps my tired toddler to stay on track with everything that she needs to do. I’ve had far less hassle getting her to help with packing up toys at the end of the day because it’s the first job on her chart and she loves sliding the arrow along as we complete each step! Using the chart helps me to nag less and encourage more.
The lovely Sarah from Little Billies is giving away a $25 gift card, which will allow one reader to select a chart of your choice, personalised for your kids! You can choose a routine chart, reward chart, schedule or even piggy bank chart! All of the Little Billies positive parenting tools come with a helpful handout brochure full of hints and tips too.

If you’d like a second entry, leave a separate comment with a suggestion for the new jobs chart! Which jobs do you expect your kids to do around the house…?
The giveaway is open to Aussie residents, and the winner will be drawn randomly on Friday 28th August 2009. I’d love you to get behind Sarah by entering this comp. She’s a great gal who genuinely wants to support Aussie families.
