Most of the neighbors cars are parked in their driveways, but no one is home. Today, I actually had to walk to the bank. The Hubbs took my car and I cannot drive a standard shift. We have 3 restaurants in town and 2 pizzarias 2 of the 3 restaurants are closed for 3 weeks vacation.
The Princesses’ best friend went to Spain for 2 weeks. Where do these people get all of this money to travel? Color me stupid, but I could not imagine packing up my Roadshow and taking it out to Greece or something for 2 weeks? Times have changed. My kids are officially deprived. Damn shame.
Number one son wants a new telephone. He is working with The Hubbs as is Number 2. They are out there on their grind learning the intricate details of landscaping. They come home smelling like mildewed socks, eat then want to sit down. After a while I ask ” is the bathroom cleaned?”
No. 1: Mamma, I’ve been working all day!!! I’m tired!
Me:” I can appreciate that, but I really need you to stay on top of your chores in the house.”
No. 1 ” But I worked with Pappa.”
Me: ” That is not my problem. That is your side gig…this is the one that pays your allowance”
No. 1: ” Well, I don’t want to be paid this month.”
Me: ” Cool! But you know the rules. The job has to be done regardless of whether you receive allowance or not. (*sidebar= the original agreement allows them to get 3 x’s for a bad job or having to repeat it….After 3 strikes you still have to do the job, but you receive no pay for it.*).
No. 2: K: I will do your jobs for you in the house and Mommy can pay me!
No. 1 : Ok…Mom: is that ok?
Me: I don’t care. But you know that the summer bonus is in effect…?
No. 1 : I forgot!!! Hey K2! The deal is offf!
Me: Now just wait a minute, you were quite cavalier and cocky 2 minutes ago, now that No.2 took over your jobs, you want to renig? That is not fair…
Now the twins are arguing about who can do what and who does a better job.
Competition is healthy, as long as the bathrooms get cleaned.
Kids are SO over rated.
I feel bad because I am one of those moms that dosen’t believe the sun rises and sets with mine…They are entertaining at times but Lord, I am SO counting down to their departure!
