Hector and his sister Maria have chores. Hector’s mom says,”We all live in this house and we all need to do our fair share of keeping the house nice.” Hector agrees but when it is time to do his chores he forgets or hopes his mom will forget!
One of Hector’s chores is to empty the garbage every night after dinner. He always puts it off. When his mom reminds him, he says he will do it in a few minutes. Most of the time he doesn’t do it.
Hector and Maria are supposed to make their beds each morning. Most mornings Hector doesn’t make his bed. He is also supposed to put his dirty clothes in the hamper each night. Most times he throws them in the corner of his room. By Friday he is often out of underwear.
Hector’s mom says if he doesn’t start doing his chores he is not going to be able to watch his favorite TV show and lose time on the family computer.
