My mom is visiting this week, helping to take care of the boys while I work and they (fitfully) start back at school. Yesterday afternoon she was trying to get them to clean the playroom and they were, as is their wont, resisting. Finally, she laid down the law: get to work.
One: "Grandmommy, you know, you used to be a lot more fun."
Two: "Yeah. You're the meanest grandmother in the whole entire world!"
Guess what? They picked up the playroom anyway. Where did they think I learned how to be the Meanest Mommy, anyway?
