Now Tristan is seven, our kids were up for the challenge but we thought three days would be long enough for all of us.
While we will of course be here to make sure they are doing okay, they will be doing it all for themselves. They have a had a good meal tonight to see them on their way for the next three days.
Today the rules were set (above their usual tasks of making their beds, having showers etc).
What you are in charge of:
- Feeding Yourselves.
- Doing dishes from cooking.
- Cleaning, Drying, & Putting clothes, worn over the 3 days, away.
- Keep Communal areas tidy.
- Putting yourselves to bed.
- Entertaining yourselves.
- You still need to ask to borrow Mummy and Daddy's things.
The kids, well Lucy (aged 9) really with Tristan agreeing she should, decided to plan a menu.
Tonight they are very confident of their cooking ability and filled with the joy of the idea of setting their own bedtime and having supper. Their clothes are all clean and packed away in their drawers ready for the next three days.
Let's see how the next three days pans out.
