I'm kinda wondering how much my husband is paying attention?
As I've stated in many posts about chores for kids, my girls have had a very consistent chore all school year long. Grant it, we are busy so there are days that it doesn't get done but I excuse it because we got home too late.
Each girl chooses one of the three chores: put dishes away, clean off the dinner table (sometimes sweep), and clean the bathroom counter (and make sure the garbage is taken out if needed). Besides these chores, they also have to make sure their stuff is put away, eat dinner, and do all their home to watch TV. If they are all done, they can watch TV at 7pm. If its not done, TV isn't turned on until its done. If it's done early, they find something else to do until 7pm.
So....this morning my husband is ranting about how they need to clean after practice there is NO TV until the dishes and table are cleaned off, and blah, blah, blah!
I turned to him and said, "you know they do that just about every day, right?"
Him: "Well, I'm telling them to do it today! NO TV."
Me: "yeah, our rule....if you recall....is that it needs to be done before watching TV."
Him: "Well....I'm just making sure."
Me: "But you dont' have to yell."
Him: "I'm just saying!"
UGH! I don't know what it is going on. First he wouldn't let one of our girls get bangs. Now he is trying to have this imaginary iron fist on chores they do just about everyday and we have no issues with them getting to do. It must be that time of month for him.
