It's a new day at the Walewski homestead. I have finally had enough. Housework that is. Today, we have implemented "Chores". Yes, not a unique concept, yet strangely unfamiliar here. But, today, we enter with enthusiasm. Or, shall I say, *I* enter with enthusiasm!!!
Last night, Allison and Alena picked out of a container, the room they would be assigned to. Allison got the dining room, and Alena got the living room. (Poor Alena...the living room will be hard I think.) Today, they cleaned their room, top to bottom, and they have a list of what they will need to do every night before bed to their "assigned" room.
They will also now be getting an allowance. Not very much, but something.
However, and this is my favorite part, they will be charged for every single item of theirs that I have to pick up or clean up. 10 cents for each item. :) I may not end up owing them anything for week, lol!
So, it only took me nearly 10 years to get this whole "chore" thing going. But I think I am going to like it. :)
