Do you use a chore chart with your kids? How old are they and do you have a favorite? Kiddo is 6 and I'm thinking it might be good for her ...

I think it's a great idea. My daughters are 3 & 4 and I use routine charts with them and that works out great. I have little pictures that hang on a board that says what they should be doing at that time. (ie. a toy box = play time, a bathtub = bath time, dinner plate = meal times, etc.) I clap my hands and draw their attention to the chart so that they know what "time" it is.

I sometimes feel the same way! But I always think, what's more important? How your family/children view you or how your boss views you.

I agree with Mich, you should check your work policies just to be sure! Good Luck and try not to feel bad, you're definitely doing the right thing by caring for your child(ren). They should always come first! :)
