Debbie, thanks for your comment. I hear you... every now and then I worry that I am not training my sons to keep their own homes clean... we can only hope they have excessively neat college roommates, who will continue their education!

I think my daughter could compete right with your boys. It is exhausting and I only have one 11-year-old. I too have relaxed my expectations of cleanliness, over the years. But I have to tidy up as I go. I don't know if I am enabling her dependence on Mom to create order in her environment OR if I am providing an example of how to care for and appreciate what you have. I hope it is the later!
