So, last weekend, I had had enough of cleaning. I told them that each Saturday they would learn a different task. I had Capps dusting every piece of wood furniture he could find. Mollee was scrubbing counters and placemats and sweeping all the hardwood. Daegan was picking up and vacuuming, along with laundry shifting. And Tavis was cleaning the bathrooms. I showed him how to wipe up the counter, cabinet doors and floor and had him cleaning mirrors.
I felt like I had made some progress when they were brushing their teeth that night and someone made a mess and I heard Tavis say, "Hey, I just cleaned off the counter, be careful!"
