The other day I was washing dishes and I had to go downstairs to get a dishrag to dry them. I'm far enough along in my pregnancy to make stairs exhaustingly difficult, so I was sitting on the landing, taking a break when 3yo DS walked up to me. He sat right down next to me and said "Momma, let's have a chat." This is how it went:
Me: Ok, what would you like to chat about?
DS: I love playing in my ball pit, and you just love doing dishes.
Why do you say that?
DS: *In an exasperated tone* Sigh, because everyday I play in my ball pit, and everyday you do dishes.
Then, last night when I was getting ready to go to the grocery store:
DS: Momma, where are you going?
Me: I'm going to go, go, go, go, on an adventure (Cat in the Hat theme song)
DS: Hey, come back here. You didn't do your chores.
Me: Excuse me? (Icy Mom voice)
DS: You just need to clean my room.
Me: I most certainly do not. I didn't get those toys out, I didn't pull your books off the shelf, and I didn't throw your blanket on the ground. Why on earth would I pick up your mess?
DS: *Sigh* because you just love me Mommy
Me: (trying not to smile) I do love you baby, but you need to clean your room.
DS: But Daddy doesn't clean his room.
Oh, and he will randomly walk up with a laundry basket on his head and say: "I am a robot dinosaur. Roar." in a robot voice. It's really cute, especially the roar, because he says the word roar in his robot voice as opposed to when he is a regular dinosaur and he just makes a roaring sound.
