My children have been taken over by aliens!!
My girls came up to me today and said, “Mommy, we want some new chores.” And then when I did think of a “new chore” that they could do I got a very polite “Thank you, Mommy” in return. When was the last time you heard a child thank their mother for giving them chores????
That in and of itself is scary, but then they voluntarily cleaned up their bathroom, sorted socks in the hallway (and even cleaned up after themselves there), and currently they are coloring very nicely in the library with their younger brother!!!
I think I like aliens. =) I wonder if I can have these particular aliens permanently.
