Today we had a VERY LONG list of cleaning to do. 

I told the boys I didn't want to start decorating for Christmas until our house was in better order.

Middle Boy and I got started.  It took Younger Boy THIRTY minutes to eat a grilled cheese sandwich before he could get started and then the only things he wanted to do on the list were things that someone had already done.

So...Middle Boy got to choose what he did and Younger Boy got his tasks assigned.  Of course...that isn't one bit fair.

Middle Boy did a GREAT JOB.  Younger Boy did an age appropriate (minus a couple of years) job.

The house looks a million times better and just seems a lot more peaceful.

Praises for help cleaning and the time and focus to just get it done.
