I'm not beneath bribery when it comes to motivating kids to do work. Not a bit. So, when the mail lady delivered the new costumes last Saturday from Our Coats of Many Colors I didn't let Super Boy and Princess Rose open the package right away even though they begged. Oh, I was tempted. I really, really wanted to see the costumes myself, but I needed the Saturday chores done. And, golly, you wouldn't believe the amount of work a 6- and an 8-old can get done, or the speed, when there is a big huge package sitting on the dining room table waiting for them. (And it got here so fast!!!)
It was worth wait for chores to be finished. The kids loved them! They are so beautiful and the craftsmanship of the sewing is very good. If my friends didn't already know that I am a domestic nightmare, it would be fun to pass the costumes off as my own creations. Instead, I'll let everyone know that they can get them too from Our Coats of Many Colors. These are costumes that can be passed on from child to child and then grandchildren.
