There are days when being a mom is easy. Then there are the other 364 days per year. So, today, I've decided it would be a great idea to "charge" the kids for my mom duties. Don't you think it'd be a good idea?
Here's just a few of the items they owe me for (just in the past 12 hours)....
$3 - Getting up at midnight last night to give Lauren Tylenol for a headache (medication administration fee is $1, plus the $2 after-hours charge).
$10 - Cleaning up a very poopy diaper and pajamas from Mason this morning (he's on a round of antibiotics) and giving him a bath at 7am (bath fee of $1, plus the $9 grossness factor fee)
$1 - Giving Mason his antibiotics (in addition to his regular medication)
$5 - Transporting kids to/from swimming
$1 - Giving Mason another bath at 11am (see next note)
$15 - Stripping the car seat down to wash it since Mason had a potty accident in the car today (this would include cleaning the seat of the car, the booster seat itself, and the material).
$3 - Laundry
I think that our day would be much brighter as moms if we itemized our duties and put a price tag on our day. It's only 11:55am and I have already earned enough for a manicure and pedicure!
