When I got home, I did not see the usual green "I am done cleaning" light on the dishwasher.
I started to get a little irritated. But as I investigated more closely, I found the kids had not only emptied the dishwasher (and reloaded with dirty things!)
but also emptied out the sink of the newly washed dishes.

"We are tired of hearing you fuss every day when you get home."
Glad to hear it. About time. Really. I know it's no fun to unload a dishwasher but doing it before mom has to either fuss or do it herself really gains good kid points. :-) (and yes, Katie reads this blog--but never seems to comment!!)
Being the good mom that I am (hee hee), I made cookies for the kids tonight. Nothing like I usually do but the typical
But sometimes these are enjoyed more than mine from scratch. Huh.
Guess that tells me which cookies to make.
A public thank you to my kids for stepping up to the plate. I hope the effort continues!
Please. Pretty please. Or mom may lose her mind more than usual.
That would not be a pretty picture.
I promise you.
