1. How do you divide up chores in your homes?

I'm officially in charge of everything.

2. How much does your DH help?

If things get over my head sporadically my DH will do a quick clean which can be either very deep and helpful or mean just shifting all the pots and pans in the house onto one part of the counter.

3. How much do your children help?

Drew refuses to help a lot of the time, but I can coax him. On the other hand, tiny little Sunny loves to clean up.

4. What specific chores do your children do?
Toy pick up.

5. Do you give an allowance to your children in exchange for help around the house?

6. Do you use a chore chart?

7. What is your favorite chore?

8. What is your least favorite chore?

9. Is there a particular chore you consider to be too hard for your children?
Just about everything at this age.

LOL! I try to get it through everyone's thick heads around here that it really doesn't count as CLEANING THE KITCHEN to just take all the dirty dishes and shove them in the sink until they bury the faucet! It's the equivalent of cleaning your room by sticking all your stuff in your closet. Someone still has to come by and unload the dishwasher and load it again or (gasp) wash some dishes by hand. And that's usually me.

But everyone else just thinks they've worked so hard because not hte kitchen LOOKS better. Never mind that whether the dishes were on the table/counter or in teh sink, I'll still have to do them. Only now I can't turn the water on because even if I could FIND the faucet, there are so many dishes in the sink that the water would just run all over the counter. And so before I can even START to clean the dishes, I now have to take them back OUT OF THE SINK just so I can do the work that they all failed to do earlier.

Wow. I guess that was a rant. I just thought it was funny to hear you talking about rearranging pots and pans!
