We've recently implemented a new chore chart around here. All was going well with everyone falling into routine quite nicely--until last night when Big Kid was doing his laundry round-up chore and I heard some stomping and muttering from the other room.
Big Kid walked into the kitchen with an armload of clothes and a scowl on his face. "You know, it should be a law that no child should ever have to touch his mother's underwear."
Mr. Ashley and I looked at each other and laughed. "What?" Big Kid asked. "I'm serious."
And that's how Big Kid got his laundry round-up chore permanently reduced.
(Because he's right!)
