Well, I have come up with a creative solution to something that drives me crazy. My son has an alcove bunk bed whereby the botton bunk comes out from the wall at a 90 degree angle from the top bunk which aligns the wall. The bottom bunk where Jordan (15) sleeps is a cozy little alcove with shelves built in beside his pillow. He tends to use it for leaving dirty dishes, mostly glasses. In my frustration of getting him to bring them into the kitchen to be washed, I figured I would help him amass his collection. For the past few days I refused to wash any glasses. Now they are all on the shelf in his bed. There's about 30 of them. All dirty. When he confronted me last night about this, he was giggling when I told him I was only helping him. Now he has the biggest collection of all his friends. How cool is that? When he becomes frustrated enough that there are no glasses in the kitchen he will get them out and hopefully there is a lesson learned. I have stashed a glass for myself which I re-use. I can be just as immature as him!
