More of Wy's wisdom

The other night at dinner, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a statesman headline, "Make sure you pencil in 'chores' on kids' schedules."
I looked over at my 17 year old son who has an amazing work ethic and said, "It's such a relief that you ended up with such great work habits even though we never, ever gave you any chores to do. I'm so glad I don't have to feel guilty for screwing that up."

"It's because you never gave me chores," he replied. "If you'd given me chores I'd be hostile."
Out of the mouths of babes.
