Trash Day

Tuesday morning is trash day in our house. Which means that the "safari" helps with the trash. Throughout the week we put the empty boxes, milk containers and other bulky trash items on the dryer so that it does not make the trash can fill faster.

The "safari" gets to take these items to the big blue trash container outside. They think this is fantastic and every Tuesday morning they are jumping off the walls. Well as you might know it has been really cold outside in the mornings and so I had to dress them a little more than just Crocs and PJ's.

I think that it is great that we are teaching them early that this is a family house and that everyone has to help keep the house clean.

Soon they will be unloading the dishwasher and doing laundry. Right now we pick up our toys, which is a post for tomorrow, put our dishes in the sink, put our clothes in the laundry basket, pick up our rooms, and take out the trash. They also like to push the buttons on the dishwasher, washer and dryer to start their cycles.

You and Noel are doing such a good job in showing the children that they can help with the chores of the house. Every child needs to feel needed and this helps. It also instills a work ethic that is lacking in today's society. I love you and the children. Give them a kiss from Nana and Papa and tell them they are doing a great job.
