and the the little neighbor boys asked if my kids could come out and play. I said "no not unless they are finished with their homework". Okay they said and off the went.
30 minutes later ---ding dong...........can they come out and play.
me: No I am sorry they aren't quite done yet.
them: Can they just do it tomorrow and play anway?
me: No, they have to finish first then play.
me: That is the rule at our house.
them: Oh we can play and do homework later.
Giving me a look like I am the meanest Mom on the block. LOL.
Oh well, my kids are doing great in school. So I am doing something right.
I told them to try back tomorrow.
Now is is after 5 and we still have supper, bath and bed. These neighbor kids tend to stay up late. I guess they do their homework after supper or something. In any case it was funny.
Pens, pencils, markers, etc.
