Day 1103: Saturday Chores

I'm thinking about getting the kids started with some regular daily chores.  They help me out off and on when asked, but I'm reading this book Cleaning House and it's been really inspirational about giving the kids more responsibility.

Anyway, today they got involved in helping HH clean the house while I ran some errands.  It was really nice.  I came home to a clean home.

And then we had a relaxing afternoon watching "Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets" because HH just finished reading it with them.

And then HH made me be brave and drive through the car wash.  Driving onto those tracks scares me.  And gives me a panic attack.  But, we did it.  It was a free car wash and it was the high light of Baby B's day.  He talked about it for the rest of the day.

Simple pleasures, my Friends.

David has been the one that starts the chore system in our home. I am such a controlling person, I just want to do it myself.
But hey E doing the dishes after dinner is awesome!
So stick to it and after a while it will pay off.
Good luck!!
