One thing that they are not good at is getting their clothes out in the morning, or at bath time. I get their clothes out in the morning, throw them on their bed. If I'm missing anything like socks or undies they each yell out, "Mom you forgot to..."
I then reply, "Get it yourself!"
Then I hear grumbles. It's like they are cussing, but actual cuss words don't come out.
This weekend Dad had a gig at our local art museum.
I was making fried chicken, sweet potatoes, and green beans. Before I started making dinner I told the boys to go start taking their baths, so we could start watching the third harry Potter movie.
I said, "Mica my fingers are sticky with egg and chicken. You need to get your own pjs."
Mica said again, "Mom get my pjs! I'm cold"
Apparently he didn't hear me.
I said, "Take your cold self to your room. You need to get your own pjs." only louder.
Even after he heard me he kept repeating himself. It was as if he wanted me to drop what I was doing to go help him. If I wasn't so tired myself (I woke up that day at 4 AM) I would have taken back watching Harry Potter.
It's during a time like that where I was thinking, Is he going to be like that with his wife someday?
I wouldn't say my kids are lazy. But man they sure could grow up with getting their own clothing.
