She called me “mean mommy” because I wouldn’t let her outside…to pick up dog poop. Oh, child. Just you wait.

You have to be three before you’re allowed to pick up dog poop. And five before you’re allowed to dry the dishes. Seven before you’re allowed to clean the bathroom. Nine before you’re allowed to wash the dishes and help with ironing.
We didn’t have a dog, but the rest of it is the strategy my mother used to get us to do chores. We were begging to be “allowed” to help! Smart woman, my mother.

We have 2 dogs and I’m not good with poop (any kind of poop nor sick either). My husband does it most of the time, I do it sometimes and sometimes my lovely 8 year old grabs the bags and gets on with it! Bless her, shes wonderful!

Oh the hardship of being 2! Poor, poor Annie…

Well, now that’s just cruel. Won’t even let the poor baby pick up dog poop.
We have a border collie and a sheltie, and I must say, nobody has EVER been mad at me for not letting them clean the yard. As a matter of fact, nobody HAS EVER cleaned the yard except dear old mom…..

Meanie! Not letting Annie pick up poop! Geez! You’ve gotta take advantage of her joy in doing this while you can.
For instance, my 3-y-o niece finds weeding an absolute joy! Who in their right mind would stop her?! She did however pronounce my cat’s litter box as “gross” and won’t help there. Bummer. My other niece (who is 12 now) was obsessed w/cleaning out the litter box when she was 4. We couldn’t stop her from cleaning it. The cats were afraid to go potty because she would anxiously be waiting to clean up after them–sometimes before they were finished.
So yeah–you’re just mean!
