Division of Labor

Not so long ago, Hubby and the children were at a nearby garage sale. The littlest boys immediately latched on to some matching lawn mowers and the price ($1 each) was right. Done deal.

My oldest daughter, however, has never had an unexpressed thought and she couldn't possibly walk away without comment. Turning to the woman selling the merchandise (who I've seen doing plenty of yard work), she says, "My mom always says to us girls, 'if you never learn how to mow a lawn you never have to do it.'"

Maybe it's time I kept some thoughts to myself as well...

vacuuming AND mowing "for extra beauty"
