My kids are all the thanks I need


Peyton – Will you get me a glass of water?

Me – Get it yourself.

Peyton – pleeeeease, mama?  I’m tired today *makes very put-upon face*

Me – (grumble grumble grumble but gets up to get the requested beverage) You know if you just pull up a chair you can get a drink whenever you want

Peyton – (mumble mumble) —vant

Me – WHAT was that?

Peyton – I LIKE calling you my SERVANT!

….and that’s when I banged my head into the wall to stop myself from throwing something sharp at her.

I call it a Mommy WIN.


Just because I can’t post one of the MASTER without some of her minions.





The IPod Touch giveaway is still going on!

    My daughter wanted My Love to dress up like a French maid for Halloween so she could be her servant. I had my own reasons … which weren’t to far off.

    I can’t tell you how many times my son has demanded that I go get whatever toy he wants because it is on a different floor and he is “too tired” to go up and down the stairs. Then he will say, and I know he did NOT get this from his father, “It’s women’s work.”!!!!!

    Oh my goodness! Is this what I have to look forward to? My one year-old just points and whines when she wants something. I’m not sure which is worse the whining or the words…

    Ugh, I hate it. I am totally a servant. Buuut…I look at it as my only form of physical activity.

    She is only saying what ALL moms already know…..parenthood=indentured servitude. Except there is no point where we earn our freedom! 🙂

    Of course…..I suppose it could be worse!

    That could’ve easily been something one of my kids would say. 🙂
