I have been trying to teach the boys about chores and responsibility lately with having them take their dishes to the sink, etc. One chore I have been trying to work on is having them put their dirty clothes in the laundry basket.
Today, I changed the boys out of their jammies in the living room and told them to “go throw them in the basket!” Benji promptly grabbed his pj’s and ran out of the room. Micah was a little more reluctant. I coaxed him and we trotted off to the bedroom where I thought I would see Benji. He was not there.
Noise: CLUNK! (sounds like the toilet lid!!!)
Me: (dashing out into the hallway) Benji! Did you throw your jammies in the toilet??
Benji: (very proud) YEAH!
I ran to the bathroom and lifted the toilet lid–and there were Benji’s jammies. I guess I need to be more specific about which “basket” I ask the boys to throw their clothes in (though we have never called the toilet a “basket” before…go figure!) Hilarious!
