I wanted to do this post yesterday as part of the Riggs family blog but didn't get the chance, so I am adding it today. If you haven't seen it yet, you can skip on over to their blog and read some very funny stories.
Here is mine:
A couple of days ago Hanna went to a friends house for a few hours. Rylee just doesn't understand why she can't go and was complaining - well whining really - about not getting to go.
I told her how lucky she is - after all she GETS to stay home with Mommy and help me clean the house and finish putting away the Christmas decorations (I know really late - but that is a whole 'nother story!)
I told her, "It will be fun Ry - remember you like to help Mommy - we will have fun together! We get to clean the house - you can mop the floors and we can finish putting away the ornaments!!!" "Oh, okay Mama" she replied.
About 15 minuted into our cleaning session we were taking some ornaments off the tree and Rylee was wrapping them for me.
The conversation went like this:
She softly says "Are you SURE Mama?"
I said "Sure about what sweetie?"
"Are you sure I like cleaning Mama?"
I smiled at her and said "Of course I am sure, you love to help Mama remember? - it's fun!"
She sighs and says "Are you really sure Mama? - You promise I like to clean? - You really promise I like dis Mama? Cuz... I don't really FEEL like I like to clean Mama, I FEEL like I wanna watch Episode Jon plus 8!"
