This week has been interesting.

For starters, as is tradition for us we started playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving. We listen to Christmas music all day every day through New Year’s Eve. Sounds crazy…nope, that’s just how we do it in our house.

But here is what is interesting:

The boys decided they will take turns loading and unloading the dishwasher.

They also decided they would help as we prepared the yard and the grass for winter.

This morning they asked if they could learn how to do the laundry and they even folded their own clothes and put them away.

One volunteered to help with grocery shopping while the other stayed home to help clean

And then it hit me…

Santa Claus is coming to town…and they need for me to tell Santa that they have been good boys in order for them to get presents!

So right when I started to believe that they were finally reaching the point of recognizing that I could use some help around the house…the truth hit me like a ton of bricks…these turkeys are working to get good Christmas presents!

He sees you when you’re sleeping

He knows when you’re awake

He knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake!
