Huckleberry Finally Gets It!

We are big believers in having children do assigned chores, but there are just some chores that cannot wait until they get home from school (definitely an argument in favor of homeschooling).

This past week there was no school, so the boys had to help with more tasks than usual.  After being asked to unload the dishwasher for the 2nd day in a row Huckleberry exclaimed:

"It's like the dishwasher has to be unloaded every day!"

Well, yes, it does.  In fact, sometimes twice a day.  Chore time is still not perfect, but there is a new willingness to help that I hope is permanent.

*gasp* It DOES? So THAT'S what my issue is. Well, that and laundry. Because did you know clothes keep piling up in the hamper, day after day? Who knew?!?!
