Tom, on being asked to clean his room

“WHY DO I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING? I’M NOT YOUR LITTLE SLAVE YOU KNOW!!!!”

Can’t imagine where he got that line from….

It’s a good thing it was Adam on the receiving end of this because I, in the next room, completely failed the do not laugh at your child’s outrageous rudeness test and guffawed audibly. That, and the fact that, had I been in the hot seat, the laughter would have been swiftly followed by terrible retribution as the screaming protests continued. My reserves of patience had been exhausted much earlier in the day and this particular performance even had Adam raising his voice – and that doesn’t happen very often.

  1. Oh I’m looking forward to recriminations making it past “Daddy’s naughty” (from Charlie).I can hear the indignation from here. 🙂

  2. Of course later that night during homework this escalated and daddy started confiscating Ben Ten DVDs and a Nintendo DS for a week. Tom was quite upset however he did have the presence of mind to say if Mummy was naughty “we could ban her from beading for a week”….
