Here’s how you know (as if you could possibly be confused) that you’re preparing for the holidays with a seventeen year old son as your helper.
1. He surfs the wood floors with the new chair pads that he’s supposed to be putting on the chairs.
2. He makes the cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries because when you cook them, they explode.
3. You ask him to refill all the bathroom soap containers and he says, “That seems pretty menial.” Then, you casually mention that toilets need to be cleaned.
4. He’s eager to help because he’s gotten off school a day early to help.
