Q & A Shout Out!

Feel free to go back and post on Fabulous Friday Favorites and add your link. I don't want the fact that I'm posting before another week has passed to throw you off!

There have been some questions in the comments section here at Mrs. Troop and it has occurred to me that maybe I should answer some of them.

And besides that, even though I have many other posts in the works, I'm not in the mood right now.

Too tired.


I've come up with a few questions that you have asked that haven't been answered (nothing earth shattering, mind you), but before I get to it first thing tomorrow (are you laughing, yet?), I thought I'd give you a chance to add to the list before I tackle it.

Just don't ask my anything too hard, OK? I'm a tired momma of eight and I have my limits.

For instance, "Can I have another Popsicle?" is NOT acceptable.

Nor is, "Where are my tan shorts?"

And don't even try the "Can we go to our cousins to play?" - unless your bed is made, your laundry is put away, you've cleared your breakfast mess off the table AND brushed your teeth. Then, maybe I'll consider it.

SO fire away, Friends.

And as soon as I make my bed and brush my teeth and . . .

I'll get right to it.

Brilliant idea! So I have ohsomany questions. Here is my first.

How do you organize and delegate chores during the summer time?

Good question "Daisy Girl". I would like to add a little to that. My kids have some jobs that they rotate and do. It seems like they could do more. What do you have your younger ones do (ages 7 and under :) ?

I'm sure I'll think of more. I'll leave another comment later.

me again...

How do you feed 8 children on a budget. I used to be able to fix one meal and it be leftovers for another dinner and maybe a little lunch for 1 or 2. Now, this can't be done. How do you or where do you buy fruits and veggies? They are so expensive.

What tips do you have for buying groceries.

Okay, I've got another. What about laundry? I only have 3 kids and can't seem to keep up with washing and putting away. Do you have a very limited number of clothes in their drawers? How do you keep track of everything and keep it organized? HOW? HOW? HOW?

And I know you have a brilliant chore chart for your kids. Could ya share it? :)

I think I will have fun just reading the answers to the questions already mentioned. Even though it is summer there still seems to be so much to get done each day! I better get started!

Seriously, the chores, what a pain to delegate at my house! What about the Troops, how do you delegate? and do you rotate? That makes my mind ache to think of rotating . . . thanks, and I enjoyed our conversation the other day! What a gal you are!!! Sumer
