Sibling Sunday...Didn't get the memo

Until last night I wasn't aware of the fact that to get my children to do their chores that they had to receive a memo about the chores. Well now that I know I will make sure that there are several memo's sent out about just what chores are expected to be done. Should be really easy for me to get done since I have that list making addiction. I will say this though...I'm pretty sure that none of the girls will ever make the mistake of saying "Well I didn't get the memo about it" ever again. I'm not so sure that Army Guy will get over laughing at me about making the memo up this morning, but every now and then when I Mom feels like screaming it is sometimes best to be a smarty pants instead. Plus there was the look of shock on children's faces as they read it that screamed they got the idea.
I hope that everyone is having a great Sunday, and kids should be on the look out for memo's from their Mother's.

Memo of change:

Do to it being brought to my attention yesterday that a memo of rounding up laundry was never gotten by one child, I’m making a change to the routine. From now on the laundry will be rounded up and ready to go Friday night. Which means once you return home from school Friday afternoon you should get all dirty clothes, and towels picked up and put in their respectful places so that washing of them can begin. Your failure to have all dirty items picked up and in place will result in them not being washed by me and if you want clean clothes for the following week, it may result in you having to wash them yourself. I am not a laundry service that lives for nothing more than to wash your dirty clothes, and is at your beck and call when it is convenient for you to get up and do the chores that are asked of you.

This will be your one and ONLY MEMO on this topic, and I expect each of you to sign and return to my desk showing that each of you have read this by no later than Monday August 25, 2008.

If you should have any questions about this memo please contact management.

Please sign acknowledgement of this memo
