My oldest daughter cleans the kitchen and I am not happy with the job she does. We make homemade popcorn and she has a habit of leaving the pot unwashed. She sweeps and it doesn’t look like it. She doesn’t take the time to move every single item on the counter top and wipe underneath. I mean we have two bread makers a juicer and a mixer and they never get moved. She likes to use the dishwasher when there are not enough dishes to even start the thing. So with all of this, I have decided to give her the week off.
I can do it better, but I also realized that maybe I have never really demonstrated what I mean by clean the kitchen. Maybe I have just been barking orders and they mean nothing to a young lady who just turned 11. I mean I have been spitting orders her way for about 4 years but I am not sure if I ever took the time to SHOW HER WHAT IT MEANS TO CLEAN THE KITCHEN.
So this week she is off duty and I am on duty. I have her come by and check out my work and see why the chairs should be put up when you want to sweep. She does hate when I call her and have her do inspections with me but she will know what I need from her and no yelling will be necessary. If the kitchen does not sparkle after this week she will receive consequences and I will be sure the message was clear and I delivered.
So I hope she is enjoying her week off…
Thanks for stopping!
