Handsome Hubby and I try to teach our boys to be respectful, well mannered and self sufficient. We want our future daughters-in-law to like us. Each night after dinner, their job is to clean the kitchen and dining room. (I cooked… it’s only fair that they clean up.)
So last night after dinner all 4 boys are in the kitchen, cleaning up. With 4 boys, I’m sure you can imagine the goofing off and lack of cleaning that is going on. Conner and Mitch, specifically, are the goofiest. They are screwing around, not cleaning and are jawing at each other over who should be doing which job.
Conner: “Aw, shut up Mitch!”
Devin: (handling the situation as only an 18 year old big brother in charge can) “Hey, hey, hey! That’s ‘shut up’ please.”
