Another Day at the Office

As I was cooking dinner once night, Red looks at me and says,

"Mommy, when I grow up....I don't want to be a mommy."

A little hurt, but curious I ask her why.

"Mommys work ALLLLLL the time. They cook, they clean they do laundry, dishes....."

So proud and smiling, I say

"That's true, but I love you."

Red sits and ponders for a while.

"Daddies.....they don't do anything!"

I hope you told her that daddy is just so good at all the things he does that he makes it look easy.

To bad that she did't see dad's work but great that mom's working was noticed.

Hee hee. What did Daddy think of that comment?

Cute, I think I heard a joke like this not too long ago...nevertheless, the kid is right. Hopefully though, she will change her mind. Being a mommy can certainly be more rewarding!
