New Law

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.

"What's up?"

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!)

I totally agree with Big Kid. Both of my boys would agree as well.
My ex also thinks that the woman should have to empty the bathroom waste can because what we throw away in there is something a male shouldn't have to deal with.

I make Baby Girl pick up her clothes and her brother and take them to the laundry room for me. She does it about half way. Random items always seem to get left behind, like the wash clothes in her bathroom.

I got my kids rolling hampers at Walmart - they roll them to the laundry and back themselves - then no one has to get underwear cooties. :)

bwahahaha...I wish my mom would've taken me off laundry duty everytime I had to collect my brothers sweaty/dirty socks *gag*.

just tell him you have to touch his, LK's and daddy's stinky underwear and that is NOT fair:)
