The Boss

We are cracking down on some rules in our home for both children. The house can't be all Mommy's responsibility and so even though all along we have expected certain things we are now requiring more chores from both John and Elizabeth.

I asked John (now 7 yrs. old) to pick up all the things on his floor and I would come inspect when he was finished. When I went in, he had picked up most of it, but there were obvious items "overlooked".

I explained that when he grew up and had a boss that he would need to follow instructions carefully or he could loose his job.

John's reply... "Mom, Don't worry, I will BE the boss".
