Let them Pull Triggers

A word of wisdom to moms of young boys: if you want them to enjoy pitching in with cleaning, give them triggers. Windex, Pledge, and Lysol all have them. Of course you have to be the judge of when they're old enough and wise enough to handle them, but trust me, it's a closer to age 4 than 40. I smiled with great contentment this week as Joel, age 6, used the "trigger" to spray floor cleaner while I mopped. He shined the windows in the kitchen and family room, and then noticed the glass end table needed to be "shot" also. Bravo, young son!

Will definately employ this word of wisdom...though Natalia still is a bit random in her aim with the "trigger" water bottle I use to wet her hair. :o)
