I not only have to tell them to take showers, but I have to specify that they should use soap and shampoo. I can not ask them, "Did you brush your teeth?", but must ask, "Did you brush your teeth TODAY?". I have also had to explain many, many times that deodorant is not a cure-all for BO, but must be applied daily. My husband assures me that they will become more interested in their personal hygiene when they become interested in girls. Until then I thought I would make them some friendly reminders that would double as some cute bathroom art.
I started w/ some 8x10 canvases (they were about $1.50 a piece) and painted them to match the kid's bathroom. Then I cut out some shapes using my Everyday Paperdolls cartridge on my Cricut. I didn't have one for the deodorant and we really, really need a deodorant sign, so I just traced an actual deodorant thingy and cut it out.
Now I need to hang them on the wall. (Just noticed I misspelled a word-did you spot it?)
I'm thinking of putting "flush" above the toilet (another thing they can't remember to do), but I'm wondering if that's tacky. Thoughts?
