Why I Had Babies

Here's the conversation that took place at our house this morning as we were nearly ready to leave for school & work.

Me - B3, you need to come upstairs and pick up the clothes in your bathroom and make your bed.

B3 - Mom, you're such a slave driver.

Me - Yes, dear I am. The reason I had babies was so I could have my own personal slaves.

That is so funny! That is what I tell my kids all the time - "I only had kids so I could have someone do all my work." If they only knew how much MORE work I do because of them! Wouldn't have it any other way.

The other thing they always says is "Mom, your making my life miserable!" I always respond with "I lay in bed each morning thinking of ways to make your life miserable!" Maybe someday they will realize that the stuff I do to make them miserable is the stuff that they learn the most from.

Does this mean I can expect to hear the same thing in a few years??

Ha ha ha...I love it! Just the other night, I told the boys starting this school year, they would be washing the pots and pans after dinner since they already load the dishwasher. One of them said that is sooo mean! My response, of course... I try.
