Today I am going to do the one thing I try to not do with my kids…
…bribe them with something to get them to do what I ask them to.
Oh, who am I kidding? I do this ALL the time!
I have to get up early to get 16 year old to dentist appointment (that was cancelled on Monday after I had adjusted my sleep and work schedule, of course) and then I have to do homework, take care of the animals, and be at a friends house by 8pm.
So, I am leaving them a note that if they clean the house (to MY standards, not theirs) I will buy them dinner tonight.
1) I will not likely have time to cook
2) There is really nothing in the house to make a decent meal with
3) I am 99% sure my house will be cleaned, when I get up, to my standards
And that, my friends, makes me a happy Mom. I see Subway in my very near future 🙂
