Mommy Moments -- Chore Time

mommy moments
This week's theme for Mommy Moments is Chore time. In all honesty, I wish I could get my kids to do chores these days! They feel they are "royalty" and therefore exempt from work. Mmmmhmmmm!

Below are some pictures of my second daughter, Carolyn, back in 2005. These were around her 3rd birthday. I was pregnant with Twins part 1 and was on bedrest. I was folding laundry, the one chore I could still do, and Carolyn decided that she wanted to do laundry too. So, she went and got her doll baby clothes and spent HOURS folding, unfolding, and refolding.

I once had a picture of Carolyn when she was about 2 pushing her toy vacuum. She loved that toy! Of course now, getting them to do chores is next to impossible! The kids like to play with my vacuum now, but scream if I ask them to turn it on and vacuum!
