There .ire some mantles I'm ready to hand over immediately.  The laundry mantle is one of those.  Any time my daughter is ready to actually take on washing her own pile of jeans, I will (K'rsona ly t.ike a sharpie to her chosen laundr>' detergt'nt and l.il)el it with her name. I'll (‘ven toss in the first bottle of fabric softener.  Another mantle is the "dog dug something disgusting out of the trash. Again." My reputation as the sole individual in this house with a rast-iron stomach means I'm in (harge of such vile things. Through the yc'ars I've k('pt that mantle firmly on my shoulders, but I'm prepar(>d to toss It over my head and onto her shoulders ANY DAY NOW.  The other kind of mantlets are the ones that your ( hildren snatch away from you whcm you were ( niis-ing along, thinking you were the person in charge of all such things. My daughter recently snatch('d the technology enabler mantle.  For many years, I'vc' ix'en tech support tor my parents.  I've hooked u[) computers, lo.ided simple programs, resolv(‘d compk'x and routine software problems as well as c leared those mental ‘«tumbling blocks that technology puts in place. As the kids got bigger, I inexplicably got busier. I thought once they (ould manage' bodily functions, I'd have all kinds of time. Ha!
