My Son's Idea Of Pre-Rinsing The Dishes...
All of our kids have chores to do. The basic jobs of dishes, laundry, and kitchen cleanup fall to them on a rotating basis. There is a little chart on the fridge so everyone knows their duties.
The problem lately is...basketball season. We have Emma cheering, Kate on the girl's team and cheering, and Jr. playing on the middle school team. Basketball season is not like football season. Football is a Friday night thing. Predictable. Reasonable.
Basketball games are played on 3-4 nights per week, with practice on the inbetween evenings. The games are stacked so that we don't finish until past 9 pm. Then it's 20 miles home for homework, supper, and chores. Madness.
With such a schedule, shortcuts must be found and we have found it necessary to assign chores to our dogs as well as our children. Flounder has chipped in with his potcleaning skills.
Good dog, Flounder, good dog!
