Why We Have Kids*
One day last week, Clare asked if she could do the dishes. I overcame my inner control freak and realized that this was a great offer. After all, this is a job I have been looking forward to farming out to my kids for close to seven years. It's a job that I did diligently, if not cheerfully, for ten years or so before moving out of my parents' house. Sort of like the circle of life, right? Regardless, it's bliss. I'm certain that the novelty will wear off for her very soon, but my delight in not doing this chore myself will most certainly not, so...she's stuck.
