There are a lot of unpleasant chores around the house. Take for example last night. Last night we needed to get the kitchen floor mopped and the girls bathed. Sometimes bath time is hard and exhausting, but so is mopping the floor.
In order to make these tough decisions: trash or laundry? teeth brushed or feed the fish? diaper change or make lunches? make dinner or clean up dinner? etc. my husband and I have tried a lot of different tricks.
First of all we tried this little spinner game from a book we got at our baby shower some 5 years ago. It is hilarious and wonderful but I swear it is rigged. Obviously after it landed on mom 3 times in a row I threw it out of the room and we switched to good old fashion "rock, paper, scissors."
What do you do? Flip a coin? Predetermined chores? Switch back and forth? 1,2,3 not it?
