72 hours, almost to the minute. That's how long it takes for the novelty of a new chore system to wear off. Rats! I was hoping for at least a week of this thing called bliss. Now, I'm just the mean mom that makes them do so much work. Back to reality.
Currently, the kids are banging around in their rooms amid hundreds of dollars worth of sparkly new Christmas toys...playing with their coats and scarves. The object is to see how many they can pile on themselves. I wonder what kind of reaction I'll get when I break it to them that they have to pick up every last bit of it...with ZERO help.
