Then, that person laughs and walks off ! Not so quick ! Once my Mom gave me some good advice. She said, " Cut your big room into quarters and clean 1/4 of it while a t.v ad is on. like get all the dishes picked up or trash. etc. When I was a mother of 5, including triplets, we called it, "pixie pick up". It was a game I made up when I had a girl 5, a girl 3yrs and triplets.2boys and a girl SHOCK! mother nature fooled us, our caboose ! Our 5 and 3 yrs. old girls were our (go-fors) gofers, lol

Now I am a Grandma of 10 grandchildren and my love is twice as much. I have plenty of games to get the kids to do things I would like them to do, even if they come now days twice as smart. I let them think they are tricking me! lol

    I have five children but I had 4 boys and then a girl. My boys never offered to do a thing ever. Her first words were "Momma, what can I do to help?" LOL The boys would do a job IF I SPELLED it out in detail and then watched them do it and then as soon as I turned around they'd disappear. I'd have to go get them if I wanted a second job done. My DD just sees what needs to be done and does it.
