Amy's kinder's bribery day





Another last. Last time we are bribed with seeing our kids do a cute dance to come out at 8:00 and clean up the kinder grounds. I don't mind yard work and I appreciate Amy having a nice clean and safe place to play but I think the system is screwy. 200 kids times two parents (well most of them anyway) is far too many people to be trying to keep themselves occupied with spades and buckets and wheelbarrows for 30 minutes. I think a roster system would be far more effective at year round maintenance...

But then we wouldn't get to see our kids do cute dances and then how many people would bother getting out of bed that early and fighting for a car park just to scoop sand around the playground?

Another last indeed. : ) Amy looks beautiful!

I agree a roster system would work good too, but then you wouldn't get that cute performance.

At Noah's yochien, we do our yardwork on a roster. This month I forget who, it's either all pink badges or red ( the parents). It's their turn. : ) Ours will be in a few months.

Oh I do like this post, very funny. Luka's school makes us work too - work and pay, and sometimes we pay for our work!

Thanks Gina! When she's not driving me crazy I think she's pretty cute, too. :)

I love the roster idea!

And Ali, the paying for your work thing is a bit crazy huh? Our best one like that was when the bazaar weekend coincided with a typhoon. It was held in the gym instead, we spent all day out there selling stuff and then because it didn't make enough money we had to pay 1000 yen each as well!!!! CRAZY!
