Summer is officially here. I have a goal for the next 2 weeks.....I want it to feel like summer. I want my kids to come up to me and say, "Mom, I'm bored...what can we do?" For which I will reply, "Well, there is a whole house full of things and a yard out there and if you can't find something to do then I'll find something for you". Which all former kids know means..."I'll give you a chore".
Now, when kids get bored, for-real bored, they do sometimes get extra chores because they do things like pick on each other, or draw with sticks on the car, or use up a roll of tape on their face. So, how about helping me think of some GREAT summer chores....just in case they are needed.
1. clean up dog poop (my favorite to dole out).
2. sort socks from the pile of socks that haven't found their mate in weeks.
3. clean out the car (another dandy).
4. sweep every inch of the house (we have all hardwood floors -- this could take a while).
Please contribute to my list. I promise my kids will never know who was responsible for the horrible chore they were assigned. Well, Chloe reads this blog so she may look at you sideways for a while but Jackson and Audrey will remain oblivious.
