I just went to get a drink of water and it was soapy. Blah! Each week my kids alternate chores and this week is my 6 years old's week to do supper dishes. Guess he didn't get all the soap off the glass. What blunders have your kids done when trying to "help" the family?

Lets see there's the laundry ( mixed colors & whites even though she knows better ), the gardening ( pulled the vegitables instead of the weeds ), The dishes ( same as yours , also put up dirty dishes from the dishwasher )... The list keeps going & going.

Couldn't have done much more damage. Only took her a couple of hours to uproot every sprout. At least with a chicken I could have eaten it as punishment but she was trying to help. She just didn't pay a darn bit of attention.

My (then 6 year old)son usually gets a glass of water when someone visits the house. One day, when a friend of mine visited, he decided to make juice (Tang) for her. He tried to pull open a new packet and spilled all the contents on the floor of the kitchen. Since it was his fault, he decided he would clean it up before he got a yelling from me. And he decided to do that with a wet cloth. You can well imagine what happened! I had a sticky kitchen floor and counter! It took me the whole afternoon to clean it up. I was so mad at him but that didn't stop him from trying to make another glass of Tang when the next visitor turned up.

HEHE I have had that happen. Worse time was when I didn't realize the mess until the next morning and I ended up with sticky feet. I was still half asleep and was totally confused why everything was sticking to me. Thanks
