Character, Character, It’s All About Character

A soccer team-mate of Master C told us about a school carnival last Fri. night, so I told the kids I would take them. Each of the tickets cost $3, so I thought I would get clever and tell the kids that they could earn the $3 ticket while helping me clean the house. The oldest kiddo and the second to the youngest kiddo thought that was an awesome idea. However, the kid with the self preservation motto (some might call it laziness, some might call it genius- you be the judge) chimed in by saying, “can’t I just sit here, not clean, and stay home tonight?”

Just when you think you can outsmart your kids, they prove you wrong once more. I should have seen that one coming though. He has been known to forgo fun to get out of working.
