The River: Writing Challenge Day 14
My kids knew I had chores in mind today. What they did not know is that I didn't want to do them and just wanted a quiet day of reading and relaxing. I told them that at the first sign of disagreement between the two of them - harsh words, fighting, arguing over something, etc. - we'd start the chores. It is now 30 minutes before bedtime and I have not heard one bad moment out of them. Yes, that means the chores didn't get done, but neither did I have to break up a fight or intervene in an argument once. Amazing!
