So I turned on some music, told him first things first, we need to wash the sheets. He went upstairs and took all the sheets off his and Love's beds. I went and took my sheets off and threw them down stairs, told him to throw his down as well.
Then he started a load of sheets in the washer for me, he already knows how to do that (yes, you're kid may be an honor student, but mine does laundry willingly!). Next on our list was to tackle the bathrooms, but there wasn't really anything for him to do, so I made up a bunch of small things he could do, things that didn't really need to be done. He helped me clear everything off the sink, take the trash downstairs to be dumped later, and take the bathrug and towels downstairs, get the broom and the dustpan/brush, I swept a little pile for him to scoop into the trash. In the meanwhile I had gotten done everything as far as the toilet and bathtub goes, but I let him wipe down the sink while I cleaned the mirror.
Next we put new sheets on his bed, and he started picking up his toys. I have been so annoyed by the number of stuffed animals on his bed, but Hun doesn't want to hang up the animal net we have because he doesn't want holes in the walls, and command hooks didn't hold it. So Babe and I did this:
|Now everyone is happy.|
After this he gave up on cleaning and so I've gone about doing the rest of the chores on our list and I only have 3 more chores to do, out of a list of 20 or so.
