Last week was the first week of summer for us. I let the kids sleep in, stay up late and do whatever they wanted, mostly cause I was not ready for "Summer Slave Camp."
Today was a different story......
When their little eyes opened, I was up cooking a good breakfast and ready to let them know how things were going to be this summer. First we ate and then the kids got ready, cleaned their rooms, brushed teeth and hair and then they thought that they were done,
I was ready for them!
The kids got to choose which desirable chore they could do from the chart I have listed on the pantry door. "Drama Queen" picked the toilets, (don't ask, I do not know why she loves scrubbing them, but she does), and "Sweet-boy" swept floors and cleaned the bathroom mirrors. While they were doing these unsavory chores I swept and mopped the other rooms and vacuumed.
So what usually takes me 2 hours to do took just an hour. Then I informed "Drama Queen" that she was in charge of lunch today. So she made sandwiches for us and then we headed out to run errands.
What a nice day!
I think the only reason that this is working is that they have been very naughty over the weekend and have lost their privilege to enjoy this for 2 days.
But that is not going to stop the man and I from enjoying it!
