Servile Work

Sophia: Mommy, would you like to have servants?

Me: [after little contemplation - and choosing the answer seeping with wisdom] No.

John Paul [the 5yo]: You do.

Me: I do? Have servants? Who?

John Paul: Us! ::big JP smile::

How observant are my little ones! He sure is right on!!

I remember telling my mom on many occasions, "The only reason you had kids is so that we would be your slaves." And she'd reply with a quick, "Yep." :)

LOL! Andrew told me that I just sit around and read the paper and give all the chores to them. I say delegating is a chore!
