    Default kids do have their uses....

    well today I was going to clean the car....until....shock horror....my eldest son (16) offers to do it....for...... NOTHING.......BUCKSHEE...

    when I picked myself off the floor, hes ruttin about in the garage lookin for the cleaning gear......must be ill, says both me and the mrs in unison.....anyhow cutting a long story short, he has done a sterling job, washed, dried, polished, and the tyres and trims done.... . Of course I had to guide him with pearls of wisdom...."do it this way, not like that, how much polish are you using..its too dear to spill it, etc....

    and me..well I was relegated to cleaning the bike......not bad I suppose...now got a shiny car and bike, for half the effort....

    It is nice to know they are showing an interest, but when mine were young, there was always an ulterior motive for there enthusiasm, but don,t stop them getting involved,it is good family bonding....

    Your,s clean their bedroom, , my lad moved out and went to university rather than clean his bedroom, ,the daughter is not too bad though...... still does not clean out the shower properly though... kid,s who would be without them. I dare say I will miss them when the daughter goes to university too, she starts in september...peace and quiet you will say, but I will be worring about her no doubt..

    and on the subject of cleaning bedrooms...the 2 boys rooms are reasonably tidy and they will tidy them when asked.....

    but the daughter....her room looks like its been ramsacked by burglars..!!, and if we ask her to tidy it out...its like.....
    .then... then.... then.....then.. then... then... ...then..then then... .......

    Bobby, welcome to my world!!!! I hate to say it but think it is a 'girl thing'. We are the same as you with 2 boys and one girl - and although the boy's room might smell a bit odd, know were I'd rather be - at least I can actally see the floor in their room!!!
