All the Work in Our Family

 - by Brittny

Eric’s and my curtain rod fell down yesterday and Sam noticed it this morning. I asked him if we should put it back up and the following conversation ensued –

Sam: No, just dad should do it.

Me: Why just dad?

Sam: Because dad does all the work in our family.

Me: Uhm, ok, so what does mom do?

Sam: She just sleeps in bed.

Needless to say he won zero points for this conclusion, especially since it was 11:30am and I had just barely woken up Eric, while I’ve been up trying to mitigate the messes our boys have been making since 7:30am.  Which isn’t to say that Eric doesn’t do a lot of work in our family, but I certainly don’t spend my days just sleeping in bed!
