This has nothing to do with the post, but I think it is a sweet picture.
My girls know they are going to get jobs every day. I've never established regular chores; no one does the same chore for the whole week nor do they have assigned "dishes" days, for instance. I think that since we are all home all of the time, traditional chore organization doesn't work. Although, who am I kidding? There is nothing traditional about the way I keep house! I have never done the Laundry Monday, Ironing Tuesday approach. My great-great grandmother would be astonished at my lack-of-routine routine.
Back to my girls. Lately, they have been making their own chore lists. Doggone it if they don't assign themselves way more jobs than I would ever have given! I think I have discovered a new secret to parenting girls.
And, no. I will not let them read this post! (:
