This conversation never happened...
Sweetie I need you to empty the dishwasher.
I'm playing ballerina princess...princesses don't do chores.
Well I'm the queen and have signed a decree saying that all ballerina princess must do their duty to help out around the castle.
But I'm dancing.
Right now young lady!
And because she has does not have a dramatic streak this is what did not happen next...
Oh my she can turn on the waterworks!
She would of course not sit down on the floor quite indignant.
Mama I think you had kids so they could be your servants.
Honey if I didn't have kids my house would always be clean, the laundry would always be done and the dishwasher would not have to be emptied multiple times a day...
Oh...maybe we should get servents.
But darling...that is why I had kids.
(I of course wasn't chuckling to myself by that point.)
But you said...
Just do the dishwasher!
As luck would have it, taking out my camera always brings out the silly side.
Tears were soon forgotten...
Let the silliness begin!
LOL...someone has watched Princess Bride one too many times!
She ended up in such a good mood she even shared her scart with her baby brother!
Who of course did not promptly take it off and use it as a whip!
Yep...the queen got her dishwasher emptied!
And they all lived happily ever after,
With the princess never again complaining about chores...
Come join us to see what else we are not doing today!
I'm also over at Not Dabbling in Normal discussing my deep loathing for slugs...I will warn you it is not for the squeamish!
