Usually, Ivy and Eva take turns emptying parts of the dishwasher. One day Eva will do silver, Ivy will do the dishes. The next day, they alternate. I told them they had to keep track of what they did. They can't. There always seems to be a conflict. So, I started writing on the calendar whose turn it was to do the WHOLE dishwasher. The girls just looked at me. I'm not good at remembering any more than they are, so I came up with this:
Since Ivy emptied the dishwasher last night, she had to put and "E" for Eva. It is now Eva's turn to empty. Once Eva empties, she will replace the "E" with an "I". I think that will solve the problem. Eva happily walked into the kitchen this morning, bright eyed, saying, "It's my turn to empty the dishwasher!" Then, I happily replied that they were not even clean yet. Amazing what a little letter can do for a chore.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children.
