My two older children have an annoying habit of ignoring me.
I KNOW that I NEVER ignored my mother when I was a teenager...right, Mom? Anyway, after umpteen times and several hours of asking my son to empty the dishwasher and having him ignore me and/or saying he would in a minute, I decided that I would not yell at him.
I told him that if I had to ask one more time, I would remove everything from said dishwasher and place it all in his room.
so I did...
I will let you know what happens when he discovers this.
I feel pretty empowered.
