Family History Monday

When you were young, did you have family chores? What were they? Which was your least favorite?

I don't remember specific chores, but we did have to help clean the house. I remember HATING it and well I still hate cleaning to this day. If we wanted something or wanted to go somewhere we needed to clean. I unfortunately have followed in my mother's footsteps. If my boys would like to go somewhere and their toys are all over the place I make them clean before we go. Oh how they hate it!

DISHES. I even had to do them on my 8th birthday party. All the guests were filing it, but since it was my day to do them, I had to scrub scrub scrub while all my little friends sat on the couch and waited. HATE chores!! :)

We always had to keep our room clean, dishes, dusting, bathrooms, garbage, yard work, lots of stuff. And I am glad we had to because I at least know how to clean, etc. even if I am not a fan! I made my kids do it to and they know how to take are of themselves.

Don't worry, making your kids tidy up after themselves is very important - you are being a good mom! You do them no favors by doing everything for them!

I had to beat the rugs on the clothesline to get the dust out.

I HATED cleaning the kitty litter box, which is why we don't own any cats now! Also, didn't like doing the dishes, folding the laundry, dusting, vacuuming,...um, i thinks that's it, but with 5 kids in the house it went by fast...
You think this would of helped train me to live on my own, but our house looks like a train wreck all week long, until the weekend, we pick one day and clean, and then repeat the process.
