I can't get NO respect!


So, funny thing happened the other day. It's a usual morning of getting kids looking decent and fed and getting the house somewhat orderly. This usually involves many reminders that the boys have to do their chores before they can play. I hope I am not the only mother in the world who feels like cleaning is a never ending activity and the majority of my time is consumed by some sort of household management effort. The night before I stayed up late tidying up the basement and taming the chaos that usually occurs down there. Well as I am in the baby's room, dressing him I hear a call from the basement "Mom! The basement is already clean! The babysitter must have come last night!" Oh how I understand Mr. Rodney Dangerfield when he says, "I can't get NO respect!!!"

SO funny Lori! OH my goodnes.. I have not an iota of creativity as to how to get kids to help out. We use blatant bribery, begging, and threats. Sounds like our house is fun, huh?
