My girls were on spring break this week. They are truly on vacation, and think that means vacation from everything, chores included! My younger daughter had the nerve to tell me she was on vacation and can’t she just rest. Really now?? Excuse me….I am not your maid. I’m the CEO, chauffeur, cook, and so much more, but not the maid. It’s gonna be a long week for them. My girls are 16 and 11, and love to spend money. I don’t mind giving them what they want within reason, but they will have to spend a little time spring cleaning this week. Basically that means I want them to clean their room, under the bed, behind the dresser, etc. That’s all, just a good cleaning and then it’s back to business as usual. It will only take a few hours if they would just do it. I’m not gonna nag, fuss or yell either. I will simply keep my money and spend it on something or someone, me. They are good girls, make the grades, follow the rules and don’t get in trouble much at home.
We usually do something fun when they are on spring break, and this year will be the same. We’ll probably do a tourist thing, we all like the zoo or Botanical Garden. The weather here in the midwest is nice, so we must get out and do that. We’ll probably go see a movie and if they have done their spring cleaning, we’ll hit the mall. I’m sticking to this one, I promise! Ok so the youngest one NEEDS new sneakers. You should see the ones she’s wearing now. Too embarrassed to talk about it. She’ll get those because of need, the rest will be on chores this week.
They have had a pretty good week, got their spring cleaning done. So that means we are off to the mall today to do a little shopping. We are also going to Hammers Food & Fun for a late birthday celebration for my oldest daughter. I love it, they can run around have a ball, while we chill and watch them. Have a wonderful weekend!
