Motivational Seminar

If by "motivation" you mean - "Hey, maybe if we actually get this, Mom will stop banging her head on the wall."

Attendance is mandatory if you live at my house, but even if you don't, you're welcome to drop by!

We could use that Seminar here, too ; ) Good luck--love the "extra chores if you ditch"

I hear you on the company thing - and started to write a big long comment, but decided it's a good topic for my own blog! And I've been pretty dry lately-
:~D

Alison Wonderland said...

So is it alright if I just drop my kids off for the seminar?

LisAway said...

That is so hilarious. I need one for my husband (but just the part about where things go. He's pretty good about eating with a fork).

mormonhermitmom said...

LOL! Does the seminar have a class about using spatulas and food storage cans as a drum set?

goddessdivine said...

I wanna come!

Dang it, I live in another state....

Stephanette said...

Are you offering one that includes taking the garbage out when it is full - not just stacking it on top and around the garbage can? How about a bathroom series with how to change that pesky toilet paper roll. I may have someone to enroll.

Carrie said...

I'm dying laughing! We so need to have one of those in our house - especially the part about where things go...

Tami said...

Love the flyer. Great idea! When are you taking this seminar on the road? I swear my 9yo needs some serious help in the utensil department.

JustRandi said...

Stephanette- I got you covered!

Click on the "seminar series" label at the bottom of the post and you can see the toilet paper changing flyer I did awhile ago!

I love this!!!! I'd pay good money to have this seminar given at my house!! Especially the one with about the ice cream scoops vs spoons.

Heather said...

you are a genious!

Kimberly said...

We have lost three ice cream scoops in the past year. We have not yet found them. This troubles me.

Jillybean said...

We could use this seminar at our house.
Could you do an additional class on "Where to put dirty spoons"
I just did the dishes and I didn't find any spoons. There aren't any in the silverware drawer.

WHERE ARE MY SPOONS?? WHERE???

One more class. The reasons why you shouldn't leave every pair of shoes you own on the kitchen floor.

Did you see the use of restroom request form I wrote a few months ago?

Jillybean said...

Seriously, you should video tape these seminars and sell them. You would make a fortune!

Heidi Ashworth said...

You are so doggone disciplined when it comes to chores with your kids. I just want to sit in the corner and cry when I even think about it.

The Pollocks! said...

I was just thinking about this very topic last night! The whole - use a knife thing instead of gagging on the huge bite of spaghetti in your mouth - would come in very handy for our 13 year old. I don't think he's ever been taught table manners. Jasen could use a refresher in where things go / can be found department. Sami could beat him! (since she unloads the dishwasher every day).

Dave said...

the trick to using a spoon instead of a ice cream scoop is to let the ice cream sit on the counter for 5 minutes or so

the trick to using that trick is having the self discipline to stare at the ice cream for five whole minutes... it works best if you distract yourself

Barbaloot said...

Totally the type of thing my mom would do when we were kids. Love it!

Stephanette said...

Thanks, Randi~
We may have to meet up so that i can get your presentation notes.

The Mom said...

LOL That is too funny! We have lived here for almost 5 years, and I still get, "Where does this go?" It kills me!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

Great idea! Do you take hopelessly too-cool-to-be-told-what-to-do teen-agers who know everything except where things go in the kitchen and proper table etiquette?

Melissa said...

I admit it... I have been known to use a spoon to scoop ice cream. I am ashamed!

Momof5 said...

Awesome! Sign me up. What is in the distributor kit and how much is it? I don't want to be ripped off like when I joined the "how to use the flush handle on the toilet" seminar or the "horror, I found my shoes IN MY CLOSET" seminar. All I got was a toilet brush and a shoe horn!

Marilyn said...

We need a seminar here on where the laundry hamper is and how to put your dirty clothing inside.

Marilyn said...

AND... a seminar on how to turn the tv off when not watching it-husbands invited.

Heidi said...

LOL I love this. I keep finding my teaspoons in the back yard and the flower planter out front. Maybe I should have a seminar.

Just stopping to say "hi"- I'd rather be a new friend than a creepy stalker. :)
