One evening last week, the girls really wanted me to go swimming with them after dinner.
As I was washing the dishes ...
Megan: Mom ... are you COMING??
Me: When I'm done with these (dishes). I can't just leave them all out on the counter.
Megan: Well when I'm an adult, they'll wait 'till the next day! Especially when swimming is involved.
Obviously the whole "teaching by example" method is workin' like a charm.
