It's hard to believe that these sweet young men are grounded (That, and/or a spanking happens when you disobey-talk back-lie-break rules in this house). Yesterday, instead of listening to them moan about how bored they were because they couldn't play video games, watch TV, get on the computer or play with friends (consequences are a pain, aren't they?), we spent the day cleaning house. They scrubbed baseboards, mopped, vacuumed, dusted cleaned counter tops, did the dishes and were generally my 'step and fetch it' boys for all of yesterday.
The house is spotless. WHY did I not think of doing this earlier?
Now what am I going to have them do today?
