Isn’t that why we have kids? To make them do all the chores we don’t want to do? What other reason is there?
I’ve been all for child labor ever since my kids could crawl. Too bad they didn’t come up with those onesie mops you could stick your kid in to clean the floor when my kids were babies. I really could’ve used that.
The company, Better Than Pants, that makes this genius product asserts the onesie is beneficial for several reasons: it teaches kids a strong work ethic early in life, it fosters a good workout (especially if you make the babies go room by room and don’t allow any breaks), it will induce better sleep (because your baby will be exhausted from the 8-hour work day) and possibly the number 1 benefit to parents is not having to clean your floors yourself, which saves you time so you can spend it doing things you enjoy. And, that’s exactly what I’m talking about. In fact, I’m talking about it today in my piece, I Don’t Need a Housekeeper – I Make My Kids Do All the Cleaning on Good Housekeeping. Good Housekeeping may have overstated it a teensy bit. I don’t make my kids do all the cleaning. I’m not a tyrant. Just most of it.Why would I hire a housekeeper to clean when I have kids to do it?

But it’s for all the reasons Better than Pants says. It’s good for them. And I got other stuff to do. What about you? Do you put your kids to work?
You know what else is fun? My book. I STILL JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE is the third installment in The New York Times best-selling series from some of the funniest women on the web. Get it on Amazon, Kindle, iTunes and Barnes and Noble. I will love you forever.
