Mom: “Mads, please change the sheets on your bed and put your clean clothes away before you start anything.”
Mads: “Ok, will you help me?
Mom: “No. I am still doing laundry downstairs.”
Mads: “But MMOOMM! It’s so TIRING!”
Thinking, thinking, thinking….she’s thinking…
Mads: “Well, I can’t make my bed anyway ’cause the other sheets are dirty and on my floor.”
Mom: “Not anymore. They are washed, dried and on your bed.”
Times like these as a parent I have no idea whether to gawk at her, laugh in my head or do the happy dance because I WON this round!
