Feeding and watering the dog

This is the chore of ALL the children. If they walk by the dish in the morning or night and it's empty, they are to fill it. No arguing over whose turn it is, etc.

Apparently, all day yesterday, nobody fed the dog. It wasn't THEIR TURN, they say.

(Here you should imagine my face turning purple as I hold back screams of anger)

No child is having an after school snack today, to remind them of what it's like to want something to eat and not be ABLE to eat because nobody fed you.

I would love to extend this to supper as well, but that wouldn't be right. But I can want, right?
