Day 5 - Growth

Day 5 - Growth

My husband comes from a family who have very clear lines when it comes to the differing roles of the genders i.e. the man earns the money and the woman spends her days caring, cooking, cleaning and being a traditional housewife. Of course she could do paid work as well but only when her other chores are done - much like Cinderella and the ball. He quickly learnt that this isn't the way I roll but that hasn't stopped him believing that I am wrong. I however, have spent the last few years coaching my children, 3 boys and 1 girl, the dual roles of the genders in the modern family - my goal being to have each and every one of them become self-sufficient, independent adults. So both boys and girls can share housework including bed linen changes, dishes and washing, etc. The result of their efforts may not be a good as it could be but I know that will improve with practice.

Which brings me to the cleaning of the oven. I think the gene that sees the grunge on this is missing. Exhibit A.
