And a teenager's dirty bedroom. . .First, Dinnerware.
As in, to use it or not to use it. And after that, where is the glassware? And why is it not in the cupboard?
Not unless I'm deathly ill and having no business doing a family dinner anyway.
Since our family gatherings still are within a manageable number - 12 people plus 2 babies with their own baby stuff to eat and drink from - I still have enough glass plates and flatware to set a proper table.
(This is what we are using now - daily use and the family dinners. Pathetic, huh? )
This reminds me of the day my dad got so fed up with the state of my room (when I was 13) that he scooped up everything into my unrolled sleeping bag; dishes, garbage, dirty clothes and underwear - everything, and dumped it out in front of me and my friends. That shamed me into keeping my room clean. (Good for you dad. It worked wonders for me).

Wonder how my teenage daughter would take it?
