We're feeling pretty settled into our new home now and are so blessed with a furnished four bedroom/four bathroom house while we are here. The kids have already had friends over and we are looking forward to hosting a number of dinners in the coming weeks to connect with people.
There has been one hang up to the housing situation, though. Typically, in our family, everyone has specific jobs they have to do from keeping rooms clean to taking out the trash to taking care of their animals. There is one thing, though, that up until now, they have never had to do.
Clean the toilet.
I decided though, since each child has their own bathroom, each child will clean their own bathroom. So on Friday, I gave instructions to each child on how to clean the "dreaded" toilet.
I was greeted with, well, shall I say, shocked reactions.
"You can't be serious, mom?"
"You want me to touch what?"
"But boys have peed in this toilet!"
"Are you making my brother and sister clean theirs, too?"
"I've decided I don't really need my own bathroom. I'll just go outside."
Hmm...we'll see if week two goes better, but at least everyone now has a clean bathroom!
