What a pleasing sight!

Mr 19 doing the dishes for me. We have a new job or chore roster here this week. We're hoping it works. ( Definition - "works": jobs get done without nagging from either the mother-one or father-one. Times this has happened previously: 0. Possiblity that the parents are out of touch with reality: 100% ) Oh well, so far about half of the jobs have been done. It's day 2. I think there's still hope. Wish me luck!!!

Pretty sure this is reality for most parents of teenagers!!

what a lovely sight! our kids help out with the dishes. one does it begrudgingly but they get done. i think it's very important for their development that they do their bit towards the running of the household.
mind you i have moments of regret when i open my cupboards and see how they put things away. hmmmmmm

May get one of these going for my other half, instead of me keep asking! I hope Mr 19 is keeping up with his chores? x
