Chores start early

If I've told you once, I've told you twice, chores start early in our house.
The other day, I yelled (I didn't know where he was playing) to my son naptime soon. I hear a "yate" I found him in the bathroom, cleaning the tub.

Chores only start early when my son initates them himself. He has his own cleaning supplies, in a hall drawer. A spray bottle of water, a few pairs of rubber gloves, some rags and a sponge. I got sick of him wasting my disposible rubber gloves, plus we obviously didn't want him getting into the real cleaners, so we gave him his own drawer.

  1. Great idea!
    Next he will want his own drawer of ingredients to cook whatever he wants. My kids mastered cereal with pouring their own milk, toast, then eggs and now they make their own pancakes. Of course the older ones can make dinner no problem...quiche is their specialty.
