He also now wants to help sweep and mop the floor, and fold clothes. They are teaching independence and life-skills, and I guess that leads to Buddy wanting to do chores! We are now talking about a chore list, with a weekly allowance to go with it.
Last night in his sleep he said "Mom, I need to get up and mop!" When I told him that he didn't, he said with huge attitude "Well someone's got to do it!"
Ok, I've been called on it. I haven't mopped since I moved in. Guess I better do that today, huh?
