Snapshots of the Heart ~ Willingness & Ability to Work

My husband and I have a very mature and practical way to share the work load around the house.

Rock. Paper. Scissors.

(Insert the Bluth brothers and their giant rock and scissors here.)

Dirty Diaper?  Rock. Paper. Scissors.

Tantruming three-year old?  Rock. Paper. Scissors.

Yucky-mucky crock-pot to scrub?  Rock. Paper. Scissors.

.... Uh ... best of three?

The kids have another method that is not nearly as effective, but it sure is cute.

Eemy Meemy Miney Mo.  Ketch a Pider.  Meeney Mo!

Being willing to do a job is wonderful.  Actually doing the job well is fantastic.

And happily doing a job 100% with enthusiasm?  That's awesome!

How do you get your kiddos (or you or your spouse) to get jobs done around the house?
How do you inspire having a good work ethic ... in the area of homework, chores and special tasks?
How do you communicate the value of a job well done?

"Teach my children, Lord, to value work 
and to work at it with all their heart, 
as working for the Lord, not for men."  
Colossians 3:23
