I thought I would be nice and take off the auto Disney music. Really... it was just driving me crazy when I was checking my blog.
Anyway, I have a question for all my mom friends out there. How did you make your kids learn to tie their shoes? Robyn was tying her shoes as soon as she turned 4 because she was very independent but as it looks now, I will need to go to college with Garrett to tie his shoes. We ALL have showed him a number of times but he refuses to try and fights it until we have to go somewhere and we end up doing it for him. Do I just make him walk around with his laces untied? We go to the bus stop at 12:25pm so I told him TV and computer are off at 12 and he was to work on tying his shoes until its time to go. Yesterday he screamed and cried until I finally had to do it to make the bus. I'm baffled, how can a kid not want to do this?? He will be 6 next month, this just seems ridiculous to me. This also refers to buttoning shirts too. There must be a trick to this boy that I'm not getting. Please, someone help me before I go insane.
