how some of our character comes from genetics and some from circumstants. Nature versus nurture.
My DH is either on or he is off. My DD14 and I can putter all day.
DH and I had a disagreement about chores, etc. (DD was not home) and I had to really pound home to him that although neither of us is right or wrong, we are just different.
No matter what my DH tries to instill in either my DD14 or myself, there are some parts of our character that won't change, nor do I want them to change. Sure, DD14 could probably do more around the house, but that doesn't mean his way of doing chores is the only way.
For example: I could totally see my DD getting up and scrubbing the bathroom or mowing the lawn and then coming in and sitting down to watch TV. My DH comes home from somewhere and complains DD is watching TV when "there is SO much to do around the house." I threw that out to him and he said "yea, you are right." So again, I reminded him that we are different. I can putter all day cleaning the house, or what have you. He kills himself running around until he is beat, then he takes a nap.
So what if it takes me and DD twice as long. Who really cares?
At work and gotta' go. Anywho, the nature nurture thing just came to mind after ready Gal's thread. Her computer savey DS could be another Bill Gates. Do you think anyone cares if Bill Gates makes his bed every morning????
