WTF Kentucky

Today we went to find Jayde a used toy kitchen at the peddlers mall/trading post, as always we found some real Kentucky gems.

Initially I thought “who would actually think it was an iPhone, then I thought, nope this is Kentucky someone will buy this.

Then we saw this- now I would have thought it was a prankster- but it was at a totally different store.

Its just sad that this sign was necessary.

Only in Kentucky.


Epic Apps! 5/22

Recently I upgraded from an Android phone to and iPhone. Naturally I absolutely adore it, in fact it never leaves my side… which means I’m ALWAYS looking for new awesome apps,and it would be completely unfair of me not to share these incredibly epic apps with you guys!

This weeks EPIC APP is iRewardChart . My kids are big on rewards and logging their progress. Naturally an app for that was essential. I found a few that I liked- but iRewardChart had all the features I wanted.

For example I can add a chart for each child, and personalize it for each child so its easy to use. I gave them simple tasks that they already do like “brush teeth”.. to things that are apparently more complex for kids their age like “no talking back”. Its really simple to give the child stars just by tapping the screen.

The stars add up and the child can choose to redeem their “balance” for either preset rewards.. or custom rewards that you chose. Some of the custom ones we listed were book of choice for 40 stars and new video game for 150 stars. I’m still tweaking the rewards, so I’m sure I’ll be adding many many more. But like I said- so far they adore it… and it’s been resulting in great behavior from them. Over all the ease of use and basic idea is a huge win for us. We all ❤ it. If your a parent you NEED this app!

The paid version is ad free and you can add as many children as you’d like. Best part? Its only $3.99 (I love my free apps but this one is really worth the money) if you don’t want to fork over the money just yet and want to give it a go for free- they have a free version iRewardChart lite.

If you happen to have a problem or question about the app they are readily available on both twitter and facebook.
