Evil Mom Strikes Again

Our children are sure to grow up & become utter slobs. I'll get telephone calls from concerned psychiatrists, "Mrs. Bookwormom, do you understand just how traumatized your ______ was by being forced to help ____________ as a child?! (Fill in the blank: dust, vaccuum, mop, load dishes, cook dinner, scrub bathrooms, etc.) As a responsible parent you should've been the one doing all the housework or else hired a maid. Your _____ will never be a well adjusted, productive member of society because of your laziness!"

Or else the psychiatrist will say, "Mrs.Bookwormom, do you understand just how traumatized your _________ was by being deprived of______________. (Fill in the blank: a McMansion, an XBox 360 & every game they make, ipod nano, tv & dvr & phone in their room, a chauffeur [mom] driven new SUV every year). Your child never fit in during his formative years & now his/her workaholism/type A/overdriven personality/materialism is all your fault!"

Well, my son will be on the couch next to your kids--LOL.

Not that long ago while cleaning his room, he announced "Why do I have to do your job?"

Do you think we can get some sort of group discount???

(I'm playing on the computer as I'm making the dreaded chore list)

even 5 yo's say "Why do I have to do this" This being picking up toys/clothes/mess. My response: I don't play with them. Or I don't wear it...Just like Mom :)

Tara- Son #2 said that to me too. He had several extra chores as a result.

Jen- I'm not paying for their neurotic problems. LOL >;0

Alibug- I love your oh so logical answer, but I never remember it 'in the heat of battle' so to speak.
