Mommy's little helpers. *snort*  

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?

Time to scrub their bathroom with their tooth brushes?

My mother was always of the strong belief that the reason why you had children was for them to do the housework you hated to do when they got old enough to hold a dustrag.

hehehe! Adorable Punk-a-nunks, the both of them, but would you look at that sweet Aaron James? Gosh! Those dimples! xD

Yes, indeed, with the rules! Makes happy, well adjusted little people! ;D

Heavens! They are tall!

Punishment? What is this thing you talk of?

Isn't the purpose of having children so that you always have a convenient lackey/slave around?

I vote gardening.

They are such adorable boys. It's hard to believe they got into enough trouble to get grounded. Who am I kidding? I have three adorable boys too - I KNOW BETTER!

Every so often I do the same with my kids and it feels good to have them actually help clean up the mess they make by living here. Hard work is good for the soul, especially in the summer when they're bored. :)
