Boys And Chores

I wish this is a normal sight on weekends at home. Raimie vacuuming his own room. But hey! He wanted to do it without prodding and I take it as a good sign. Once in a blue moon or otherwise!

p.s. because he was such in a productive mood, he ended up vacuuming the living area too. "Ii ko ne"?

Now, if he only he wants to study and revise his lessons without prodding...

p.p.s Mommy doesn't like chores... and wishes she needn't do it every week.

    1. KJ,
      No, not harsh at all. Like I always nag my son - when I was at his age, I handwashed the family bundle of laundry on weekends. I ironed my own uniforms.

      He had it easy.

      I rasa anak I kalau suruh cuci tandas, mau mabik half a day. Main air. kikiki

  12. I'm a cleanaholic, I don't trust my hubb or children when comes to cleaning issue.

    But then, I still let my kids sweep/mop/wipe so that I'll have more time myself, kekeke! I do the QA inspection afterwards.

    1. I used to do it all the time too, but then I learnt that I cannot do this all by myself and I close one eye lor whenever the boys helped out. ;p

  13. Must train them since young, otherwise they would always depend on others when they grow up - spouses/maids/parents.... tsk, tsk.

    1. Yeah.

      Some of my friends' children told their parents "I'm not the maid" when they were asked to clean up their room. Tsk tsk...

  14. Mothers are the best role model for their children.

    2. Zaini is a neat freak? Ooo. I think I like your husband! ;)

      Delete
    3. Yup. That's why he's the one sorting out or stacking stuff in this family. He does all the packing and unpacking too. He's married to someone who regards chucking a bundle of clothes on the sofa as sorting out the laundry. LOL

  15. Raimie's room is neat. Good to train from young regardless what gender.

    1. If you can stand his chatter. Once he is comfortable with you (he'll clam up if he is not); he'll talk about nonsense just so he can talk... regardless of who is listening. ;p
