We were driving home last night and Sarah (13) wanted permission to go to a friend’s house. I told her she could go the next day as soon as her chores were complete.
“Which chores do you want complete, mother?”
I quickly rattled off: “Your bedroom, the laundry, the kitchen, and I want all your current school work on the dining room table for me to grade.”
I heard her repeat to herself: “Laundry, Kitchen, School work on table, bedroom.”
Now that was odd. What was she doing back there?
Then, I heard it again.
Before I had a chance to ask her what on earth was she doing, Anne piped up: “MOM! She’s recording it on her iPod!”
Clever girl! Then, she could replay it to remind her of all her tasks. I was proud of her for using her iPod for such a great idea.
Should I mention I have had an iPod a year longer than she has, and never even knew it could do this?
