Beaten at My Own Game

Two weeks ago, Big Brother put Little Brother's clothes in the hamper for him after their bath and told me he did it, "Because that's what Lent is about."

Last night, I reminded him several times to hang up his coat after playing outside. Finally, my mom offered to help him. A few minutes later, I gently chided him that he needs to be responsible for his own things and it wasn't Meema's job to put away his coat. His response? "But Mom, that's what Lent is about. Helping other people."

What could I say to that?
