Griffin was getting ready to go to a birthday party at a local pool. We had not yet gotten a birthday present, and we were discussing what we buy his friend. I suggested a Webkinz, but Griff had other ideas...
"I know, why don't we not give him a present. We should just give him a fifty dollar bill check. Yeah, that's what we can do!"
Steve and I rolled our eyes... like that's gonna happen;)
Last week, I put the kids to work helping me clean the house. The girls, as always, were fighting over who was going to get to clean the bathrooms (they love using the tb scrubber:o ).
Anyway, I told Reilly that she could clean the girl's bathroom and Sydney was in charge of Griff's (yeah, Syd got the raw end of the deal). When they were finished, I donned my white glove and completed my inspections.
I found Syd and said, "You know, you did a fantastic job on that bathroom. Way to go!" (because, really, she did have the tougher job with all the splatter and stuff)
She did not seem that excited about my compliment, so I asked her what was wrong. She sighed and replied, "All it's going to take is for Dad to come in and go #2, and then it will be all dirty again."
My response: "WELCOME TO MY WORLD!"
