Apparently I live in a house with 6 young justices, because all I ever seem to hear around here is
Rosie: Mom, how much longer will the chicks be in my bathtub?
Me: Partly depends on the weather, but roughly another 2 weeks.
R: NOT FAIR!
Mind you, she's the only one of the kids with her own bathroom. Not exactly sure how that's fair, but whatever ....
Bella: Can I have a soda?
B: NOT FAIR!
Doesn't seem fair that I'm the one paying the dentist for your rotten teeth, either, but OK....
Julie: Can I watch this movie?
j: NOT FAIR!
That is NOT not fair. What would be not fair is if I had to calm your fears in the middle of the night or share my bed with you because you watched a rated R movie about some evil dead thing ripping people's throats out.
Patrick: Mommmmmmm! Daniel is being annoying and inappropriate and I've asked him a bunch of times to stop and he won't listen!
Me (to Daniel: Go pick up your pony's halter that he lost, it's just inside the gate near the pond, and put it in the barn. Also take this bag of lettuce and stuff and feed it to the bunnies.
D: NOT FAIR!
Is it fair to be treated rudely? Sorry bud, but when you disrespect your brothers and sisters, you write yourself a ticket for extra chores.
Me (to James): Empty the dishwasher, please.
J: NOT FAIR! I already emptied it today.
Me: Too bad.
The dishwasher is your chore this week and sometimes that means emptying it twice in one day. Get over it.
Patrick: Can I have early screens?
P: NOT FAIR!
Is it fair that I may someday have to support your lazy a** if you don't get good a good job
b/c you didn't get into college
b/c you didn't get good grades in high school
b/c you didn't do your homework
b/c you were too busy playing x-box?
I think not.
Me: Click the button to vote for me.
You: NOT FAIR!
Me: Life's not fair. Get over it. Now click the button.
I'm Dreaming of a . . .SNOW DAY!
