Each week the Mentor Patch Moms Council answers a question on parenthood posed to them by readers or another member of council.
This week's question: What is your most hated household chore? What is the one you would much rather enlist the children/husband/anyone else to do?
My least favorite chore is dusting. Not because it is hard but because it is so redundant. Dust in the morning and it is back by lunch.
I would much rather do chores that show a completion like folding clothes, painting walls, cutting grass, etc.
Hands down -- my least favorite chore is cleaning the bathrooms.
Fortunately, the blue toilet bowl cleaner has always been interesting to my kids and they actually like to clean the bathroom.
My least favorite chore would have to be folding clothes after they come out of the dryer.
I do not mind washing them, but folding is not my favorite. I will have my daughter or husband fold them.
I think I hate cooking more than cleaning. I'm just not that interested in it. I'm not a terrible cook, but I don't enjoy it at all.
I'm happy that my girls like to experiment in the kitchen; I'm going to turn the cooking over to them as soon as they are old enough!
Mary Jo Stack:
I think my least favorite chore is cleaning out the refrigerator.
Cleaning out all the old food items, wiping out the fridge -- yuck. Then there is cleaning the containers from the left over food.
The chore I hate the most is to empty the dishwasher, and I am from the era when I can remember not having dishwashers.
Cleaning out the refrigerator comes in second.
I think I would like to live I the Downton Abbey time and have maids, cleaning ladies and butlers.
