Out of the mouths of babes...

These are two of my children's most famous quotes. The kind that your try not laugh, but leaves you questioning your parenting skills.
The first is from Becca after I told her she had to clean up the toys that were already out before she could take out any more: "You've got the wrong kid!" she cried near tears. " I wasn't made for cleaning!"
And the second is from Kenzie on a day when everything I did seemed to piss her off. In exasperation I asked her "What is your problem today?" and she looked me right in the eye, with her hands on her hips and said "You mom. You're my problem."
I had to ask.
They really are good kids, but the amount of drama that happens around here on an almost daily basis is amazing. I guess it is probably a girl thing. What do you think? Jen? Jill?

Drama? they are JUST easing you into it ;)
Drama is a personality thing , doing daycare I have seen it in both sexes...

You must have forgotten that I was the perfect child. (hehe) Okay, once in a while, I might have over-reacted. Ask Jill, seems like she and Becca maybe a little alike.

I remember those days. I sometimes wonder if my parents had us so we could do there housework for them. Many summer days I was sitting at home in my raggy clothes washing floors, not allowed to go outside to see the sun. Jen down in the basement washing clothes by hand.

Nah just kidding, we had it so easy!!!! But it sounds like your baby girls are growing up!!

They will grow out of this stage soon, I would say another 20 years and your golden. Right Jen!!!

Sounds like you have you hands full.I hate to say this but when they reach the teen's its even worse. Good luck to you and Dom.

That is hilarious Cindy. I am so sorry that Kenzie's personality is identical to mine as a kid. From what I hear I was just a terror and the stories I hear of Kenzie...same! Becca is an absolute saint but when she does come out with something that snippy its hysterical!!
