Real Life

Conversation in my home:

Eldest Dude: So, are you going to just keep giving us chores to do ALL DAY LONG?

Me: Yup. If it keeps you and your brothers too busy to fight...


Yeah. It's one of THOSE days.

It works like that here, too. If they want to bring their fights to me, I'll fix it. But they really don't like the way I choose to fix things!

Just think how clean your house will be! Well, not as clean as if YOU had done it, but still... ;-)

Hahaha - if they run out of chores to do at your house, feel free to send them over to mine! : )

Idle hands and idle minds...

Way too familiar. :)

One summer I made my twin sons spend one whole day apart - they had to eat at different times, even. It was eye-opening for them. They wanted to call it quits after a few hours, promising to NEVER fight again, but I stood firm...

Got one of mine cleaning out the fridge as we speak! Of course it's b/c he spilled 1/2 a gallon of OJ and it went all over everything.
