I got off work early so am tackling some chores.

What are your least favorite chore?

Which ones do you not mind so much?

interesting, chores aren't really age specific


That's funny cause when my kids were small they did not vacuum the house for me or even "get out the cleaning spray."

I don't believe in a self-cleaning house either. I also don't have five bathrooms, nor do I do that much laundry in one day, despite having a family of six. I iron maybe once a year - I don't buy things that need ironing. Again, your house is much bigger than mine, so you have much more cleaning to do. And if my kids were older, they'd be helping out with some of the things that you mentioned.

"were you only basing that on your experience?"

If these chores are taking 8 hours a day, how do you get them all done on Saturday in only an hour?

You refuting it with your personal experience changes anything?

Yikes; we definitely don't have 3 hours of chores a day either.

My kids take care of their own rooms, their bathroom, and the family room downstairs but they are busy with school, sports, homework, and music from the time they get up in the morning up until about 10 pm when they go to bed, so I don't get much work out of them on the weekdays except they clean up after dinner, which means clearing the table, putting away the leftovers, rinsing the dishes, and loading the dishwasher, maybe thirty minutes of work. My kids have to wear khakis and dress shirts for school and I have seldom found that they don't need at least a touch up with an iron no matter what the label says.

If I kept a nice house, which I don't, I could easily spend 3 hours a day. Between dusting, sweeping, cooking, cleaning up after cooking and laundry, it would easily be 3 hours. We live in a small 2BR apartment.
