As I’ve been focusing on training new habits and routines with our chore roster it has dawned on me that contrary to what I often feel, a lot of housework does happen around here! I have come to realise that though I may feel like I don’t get much done I am actually busy as I teach and train the kids. Training needs instruction and supervision and always alertness. While the kids do their morning chores I would ideally like to do chores myself but that rarely happens. So I feel like I don’t get anything done. Over the last week as I have written everything down I have started to realise that I have to consider what the whole family is achieving in regards to looking after the house, not just me. I personally may not be doing the chores but the house is being cleaned! It is a family effort!
