Time for a Sit Down.

Since we had absolutely no food in our house from being on vacation last week, I loaded the girls up and took them out to get some fast food for lunch. It was a beautiful day, we had Coldplay on the radio and the Munchkin asked if she could have her window down. I happily obliged.

While we were at the drive thru window, she tried to carry on a conversation with the girl working the window. Then she started asking me why that girl was there and I explained that it was her job. Just like Daddy has a job in an office, she works in a restaurant. I explained that there are all types of jobs for all types of people. Then we got on the subject of Mommy's job. She asked what I did and instead of telling her, I braced myself and asked her " What do you think my job is?"

Assuming she would say something about the computer, I was pleasantly surprised when she busted out with something along the lines of me taking care of her and her sisters. Then it took an ugly turn:

Munchkin: You work at home for me...

Me: I work at home because of you. Mommy decided it would be better for me to stay home and take care of things around the house and take care of you and your sisters, feed you, bathe you, do the laundry, cook.. Yada yada.

Munchkin: ... and drive me places?

Me: Yes, I would say that is part of my job, to drive you places. I make sure you get to school on time and I pick you up.....

Munchkin: So when I want to go to Chuck E Cheese, it's your job to drive me there.....

Wise Ass.... She has obviously been spending too much time with her Daddy!
