WHY WEDNESDAY???

It's that time again, Why Wednesday, so here goes. I have 4 kids. 2 are 14 and 12. 2 are 6 and 3. I have a very capable and involved husband. So why is it that I can be gone for hours but when I get home, the little kids are all over me asking me for this and that and everything that any of the older brothers or their father could have just as easily done for them?? They (ok it's actually C doing the talking here) swear they ask for help but NO ONE will listen!! So Why am I the only one capable of taking care of the little kids around here??

Because, the uterus is a homing device, and they all know it instinctively! Men don't have one, therefore no help in that area. It is physiological - can't be helped!

Muhahahahaa

I have one for you, why would a 21 year old girl, finish the toilet paper in bathroom, leave the empty core on the floor, then begin using another bathroom and not let anyone know the quest bathroom needed t.p., or replace it herself!!

Oh mercy, I know. Let me tell you, I know....I don't understand why the dishes don't get done if I'm not home. What's up with that?

"Oviasest"....that's my word verification. Sounds like a good description for their condition. I think I'm going to invent that word.

You're probably viewed as a more capable and responsive resource!

I am laughing with you.
I don't know how many times I have said your father is a good helper ask him my kids will just pout and say well you do it better mom.

So true...although I had mine trained...they knew when I came in the door from work...that if they asked for anything before I got my shoes and bra off...the answer would ALWAYS be NO! It was great because I got at least 5 minutes of down time before they started in on me!

I don't know why, but it is so true!!!!!!! It's enough to drive a woman crazy! Then they (men) wonder why we are not ready to swing from the chandeliers at night.

Tonight my SIL was doing my hair and making dinner (don't worry, not in the same room). Her husband was playing video games. Her two toddlers kept asking for EVERYthing. She kept saying, "Go ask Daddy." Finally her youngest son said, "Not Daddy. Only Mommy."

Go figure.

Mine, too. They will walk right by their father, who is just sitting on the sofa watching TV... to come find ME to ask for something to drink. Nevermind that I may be doing something. AND that Daddy is right. next. to. the. kitchen!
