love it!

when I was in my teens and doing the dishes I'd always leave the pot or bigger items that didn't go in the dishwasher to soak which didn't happen very often after those pots n pans ended up on my pillow! Thanks to my Dad. We don't have kids yet but I look forward to pulling that one out of the bag someday. LOL

Rayne: :-)

Malinda: We don't have a dishwasher, so there's no weaseling out for them at any stage of the game. I do like this response, though. I'm making a mental note!

That's awesome! Enforcing accountability, cheerfully, and without accusations of how inconsiderate she is, is a way more effective approach. You wouldn't scream at a two year old (well, not unless it was a really bad day), why do it to a teen?

Holding the cookies hostage -- great idea! I'm capable of eating too many, unfortunately.

love. this.

taking notes because i have the original leave-it-in-the-sink kids.
