Saturdays can be fun and tough at the the Cupits. Mom and Dad try for at least one family activity each weekend, which the children love. They also try to get chores down every other weekend, which the children DON'T love. Recent fun activities include visiting a local petting zoo, swimming in the pool and having playdates. Recent chores include cleaning the bathrooms and steam mopping the kitchen floor. It's funny that the kids spend more time crying and whining about the tasks than actually working. This is most certainly a new habit of the latest generation. In the eighties, children were happy to do anything their parents asked of them and never once complained about work.
