Mom Challenge Week 3: Set Realistic Expectations

Week 2: SLOW DOWN, went great! We had a fantastic vacation and it was nice to be able to spend time with Tyler and Katie. We went swimming, rode the 4 wheeler, ate snow cones, played games, slept, visited family. It was really nice to be in the hot, hot sun! It was fun to just relax and not have to be here or there.
Week 3 challenge is: set realistic expectations.
I wonder how often I truly set realistic expectations for my children.  ie, clean the basement.  That is a fairly overwhelming task for a child.  But, if it is pick up the dinosaurs and put them in the toy box is much simpler task and more realistic.  I am really going to work on this this week with T & K,
