Well, after one week—and as we begin our second week of this schedule and of the kid’s chores–Mack let me know his opinion.
It was time for him to go to his room for a “rest time.” They had just finished doing some of their chores. It was not time to eat anything, so I was saying NO to a snack.
He fell of the floor and said, “I just wish you’d never thought of this!!!!”
“Thought of what, Mack??,” I asked.
“Thought of all this stuff to do, all this work!!!! I just…I just WISH YOU WOULD SAY THAT YOU GIVE UP!”
Oh my goodness. He wishes I would say that I give up. Lord only knows how many times I have felt that way, but I will not give up. I will endure.
I hope. 🙂
