  • Chances are I'm still going to be the one to pick it up. If I leave it, it's going to grow into an even bigger

  • I "trained" my DH to clean up after himself very early in our marriage. If I asked him to put something of his away & he didn't do it after 3 days, I threw it away. When he pitched a fit about my tossing his stuff, I very sweetly told him that I thought he didn't want it since he didn't put it away after 3 days of asking him to. He very rarely leaves things lying around now. We taught our son to clean up after himself the same way - if it doesn't get put away after 3 days, apparently it isn't that important & it goes in the trash (or to be donated/recycled).

  • lol, you go for it. I can't take credit for the idea, though, 'cause my Mom told me that's how she "trained" my Dad!
