Catch Them Being Good


I've caught the boys doing little chores without being asked to lately!

Alex always grabs up laundry to put in the hamper.
Actually, he peeks in the bathroom while people are undressing
just to whisk away their clothes to the laundry room! ha ha.

Spencer has been gathering up empty dishes and bringing them
to the kitchen sink!  How nice!  I guess if you ask them enough
times, they eventually will start doing it on their own!


And Harry, bless his heart, has been taking off his socks when he
gets home from school and putting them....in the bin of clean socks 
in his closet! LOL!  Ah well, we still have some work to do! :)

  4. Doing chores is no fun
    But saves you a ton
    Even if Alex gives a peep
    And Harry makes the clean socks weep haha

    1. haha Alex is going to make someone scream some day
      And he'll be thinking, "What? I just want your dirty laundry!"
      lol. Maybe I should teach him him
      to check the closet sock bin?

    1. They are sweet. :) And yes, Alex is a hoot! Not a bone of etiquette in his body. haha. But he means well. lol....

      I've had that happen to me, too! Usually Taylor....who scoops his dirty clothes off the floor to put in the hamper and ends up grabbing a pair of clean socks. ha.
