I have had the feeling that it's time to change things up with in the home and make my children more miserable by throwing completely unreasonable expectations in their direction.
I have found that nothing works great for very long, and it's long past time to change things up around here. I have now relegated all children's laundry (except Danni & Enoch or course) to be done by the child who soils it. (I know, you can try to report me to child protective services, but you'll have to stand in line - behind my children!)
As I tossed out back breaking labor assignments to my slaves...um I mean children...the question "what do you do all day?" came up. I never dignify that with an answer.
Not because I'm above answering such petty inquiries, but because I honestly can't remember. Oh I do eventually, but barging into their room at 2:30 am with,
"I change diapers, make baby food, give baths, wash dishes, make dinner (3 days a week), take the dog out, take kids to appointments, play dates, homeschool activities, study scriptures, homeschool Danni, do [did] laundry, give the stinky dog a bath because nobody else will, write letters to my missionary son, practice guitar, sometimes I shower, make lunches, rock my baby for his nap, read to Danni........"
probably wouldn't be the best idea - they wouldn't remember anyway.So when I made up the new job chart under 'Mom' I put "lay around and do nothing" since they seem to think that's what I do anyway.
