Let Me Get This Straight. This is a convo that I had, the other day, with my 13-year-old son.
Me: D, did you take the dogs out?
Me: Did you feed and water the dogs and cats?
**it was after lunch at this point….chores are usually done by 9 am**
Me: Can you name me each of the major wars from as far back as you can remember, in order?
D: Rattles them off PERFECTLY beginning in the year 1754 with the French and Indian War.
Me: Can you tell me who was involved in each of these wars?
D: Rattles the names off PERFECTLY.
Me: How is it you can remember these details, but you cannot remember the same chores you have had for 7 years?
D: I like wars. I do not like chores.
Touche’ little fella. Touche’.
