Add it to the list for Mother of the Year!

I am a bad mom! I didn't make Tink's lunch today! It's just my passive-aggressive behavior.

I asked her several time over the weekend to fold the laundry in the dryer. I even reminded her last night that she was to be folding the laundry in the dryer. I got a blank stare.

So this morning, I decided to "forget" to make her lunch. She came up, grabbed her lunch bag and made a sad face that it was empty and I said "oops I forgot". Of course hubby had to make a big deal about and smile from ear to ear and say "why did you forget?" and I just said "I guess I was too busy folding laundry" . She was pissed then, but she didn't say anything. Do you think she got the message?

I am working an average of 45-46 hours every week for the past 3 years, ya think they could help out a little bit!

It was half right

So last night I was wiped out! But I had to finish up my cookies for the job for today. Scotcharoos. But i was out of a couple things and sent hubby to the store when he took Tink to dance .

Me: Get EITHER Peanut Butter Chips OR butterscotch chips AND corn syrup.

Him: Which one of the chips?

Me: It doens't matter, they are interchangeable for this.

Him: Which one do you want, make me a list!

Me: Dude, it's 2 things you can't remember that?

So i made him a list: in which I wrote Butterscotch chips,
Corn syrup

He gets back, I unpack the sack, bring out chips - the milk chocolate chips!

Me: WHAT does your list say?!

Him: You said they were interchangeable.

Me: What does your LIST say?

him: (hanging his head) I haveta go back to the store don't I?

Me: um ya
