Taking bets...

It is 8:00AM, the monsters have been at it for an hour and a half, and after nearly 40 hours, they still haven't gotten their rooms clean. Keep in mind, the boys share a 10x12' room...and D has a 10x12 room. It can't possibly take any more than an hour or two to get them spotless. Even for kids. Also keep in mind that I don't expect spotless from a three-year-old, a five-year-old, and a nine-year-old. I expect age-appropriate "clean" rooms.

I finally gave them a deadline: if their rooms are not clean by 10:00 this morning, anything left on their floors will be taken away, as will their TV privileges for an entire week. Would you like to place a bet as to whether or not they accomplish their task on time?
