More Realistic

Sometimes, my kids do things that make me go "Hmmmm?"
Sometimes, they are so naughty that I can't figure out what is going on in their pea brains.
Sometimes, it is so sweet and thoughtful that I can't figure out what I did right. 
Sometimes,it's both.

As was the case this morning. 

My husband got up this morning (he is off today.  In 6 more weeks, he'll get another Saturday off!) and made breakfast. 

*For those of you that know my husband in any way, I will calmly wait while you pick yourself up off the floor*

We were all sitting at the table, enjoying a family breakfast of eggs, sausage and toast. 
Jeven says "May I have some  more sausage, please?"

Judd and I look at each other.
"What was THAT?!"  Politeness?  Niceness?  At the kitchen table?  How can this be?  Did our constant drilling and correcting finally make a difference?  What DO we do?

Before we can answer our awesomely polite young man, we hear:


"So, you gonna pass me the sausage or what?"

I have to be honest, we actually sighed a little with relief.  We were now back on familiar ground. 

*Judd wanted me to make sure I let everyone know that the breakfast was delicious*

*I would like to let everyone know that although he made breakfast, I still had to clean up the kitchen.  Even with a new dishwasher, it still is not my favorite thing to do.  Seemed a little unfair that when I cook, I clean up.  Shouldn't it be the same rule when he cleans?  Yes, I think so too*

  1. I think that the rule should be that if YOU cook, then he cleans up. And vice versa, of course. But it never worked like that in my house, either.


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
