We've all got the blues. It's too hot to play outdoors , there's a water shortage so the swimming pool is temporarily closed, school off for the vacations and there's absolutely nothing more to do than play video games and read comics.
That's the routine these poor overwhelmed, overworked teenagers follow.
And then we hear stuff about stress and peer group pressure.
We've just returned from Delhi after a short vacation with the parents. So sweet child was all spoilt and pampered,however enjoying every moment with the grandparents. And my mother has always ensured that children never have any free time...he was assigned the job of operating appliances.
Dishwasher, Washing machine and the likes.
This was deemed to be an Odd even activity with for members of a family. Well ,the mother, me ,I am the female here.
I don't believe in doing much of the work anymore. I'm like a senior bureaucrat here at home. I give directions and expect the chores to be completed.
So the package of Ariel detergent had to be put to good use.
So all the cushion covers were removed and bedcovers were taken off and the bucket was to be emptied into the washing machine.
So the boys video games were interrupted and they were put to some work.
Sweet Child's male chauvinism has been nipped in the bud a long time ago. But he was reluctant to go all the dirty work.
So he roped in his friend.
The even tempered person was wielding the camera and the odd men were sorting the dirty clothes.
That one carton of Ariel was tossed around bit and once the playing had ended they did manage to get the clothes in the buckets to be loaded into the machine.
And because the boys were having so much fun, sweet dog Romeo also decided to join them.
In retrospect and in GIF ,even washing clothes is fun.
A word of advice here,these bed covers and cushion covers are all made of cotton and are safely dumped into any washing machine witha safe detergent like Ariel.
You can be sure that the boys shenanigans will not lead to their white Tshirts becoming pink and blue or Tie Dyed.
I wish mothers al made their boys do the chores they make thier daughters do.
After all the boys may need to manage all their work alone. And when they have a detergent like Ariel, you can rest easy that your child will be wearing clean clothes, even when you aren't around to supervise their Laundry.
And when they have families, its only fair that they help out their partners in all the house work
After all,you do need clean clothes.
So why should you expect the lady of the house to be lifting the dirty Laundry to load the washing machine.
Its not that difficult ,is it?
So all motbera should be like me. Even though we are fortunate enough to have hired help...the boys and girls must be able to do their own Laundry.
We had a great time washing clothes. The boys washed...er loaded and like a maestro conducting an orchestra,all tunes played well and the job was done.
Quite a slave driver I am, aren't I? But thats how youve got to teach them. A teacher has to be a task master.
And I do so enjoy myself.
