(The scene: Me, mixing icing in the kitchen. Jack, lying on the couch with his Kindle, earbuds plugged in. A.J., upstairs in his bedroom, on his computer.)

Me: A.J., do you need to start some laundry?
A.J.: (faintly) Yeah, probably.
Me: Why don't you do that? Go ahead & change into your pajamas & then wash everything else. Don't forget to put on fresh deodorant, too.
Jack: *removes earbuds*
A.J.: Okay. *squeaks off bed*
Me: ... (*mix, mix, mix*)
Jack: ...
Me: Jack, did you put YOUR laundry away yesterday when it was finished?
Jack: No...
Me: Go do that now, please.
Jack: Man, I *knew* that was coming as soon as you asked A.J. to do his!
Me: (smiling) And yet, you weren't going to just go do it, were you?
Jack: (grinning sheepishly as he starts up the stairs) No way!

Boys. :-)

Of course he wasn't going to do it if he didn't have to! Lol.

My daughters did their laundry for the first time last weekend. So proud of them! But only because I had to nag and nag about getting their laundry off their floors and into the basket, and when they still hadn't done it after two days, I went ahead and did my own laundry, and casually mentioned to them that if they didn't find a way to have clean clothing, I wouldn't let them leave the house. No, not even for school. So they learned very quickly how to use the washer & dryer. It's STILL sitting in a laundry basket in the hall outside their rooms, but at least it's clean. :)

LOL Don't kid yourself - girls will avoid laundry too!

Nice to see you on LJ and am enjoying being back myself!

That's a problem. In some ways, that's my problem.

And he needs to fix that.

I know what I need to do, but I wait for someone else to say it out loud before I bother.

That's not good.
