Think it will work?
Works for me.
Today, so far, my contribution to my family has been washing two loads of clothes, unloading the dishwasher, preparing 9 meals by 7:15am (5 breakfasts and 4 lunches), chauffeuring three boys to school and maybe a couple of other things I haven’t thought of that mommies do automatically.
Yes. It feels less like a job and more like a joy when I call it a CONTRIBUTION.
We will see if three little boys agree when I offer them a list of CONTRIBUTIONS they can make to our family and our home today after school.
Contributions like: emptying the trash cans, folding the towels, putting away clean clothes and setting the table.
I like it. Can’t wait to try it out! Everyone hates to do chores but most love to make a contribution.
The power of words.
Happy contributing! (Not sure if that’s a word.)
