Here are a few things I have said to my children throughout this fine Sunday morning:
“Why are you still in bed?”
“Why aren’t you still in bed?”
“Do you want breakfast?”
“Fine, you don’t get any breakfast!”
“Don’t eat all the bacon.”
“Why did you eat all the bacon?”
“Stop with the attitudes!”
“Don’t brand your sister!” – I shit you not, those words came out of my mouth…because we really do have a branding iron.
“No, you may not brand the cats either!”
“God dammit, I am trying to do yoga and find my peace…so leave!”
Yes, that is how it goes in our house and I’m pretty sure I’m out of the running for the Mother-of-the-Year trophy. Perhaps the consolation prize is a bottle of wine….
