Today while Nicole and I were doing the dishes together we got to visit alot. Here are a couple of our short conversations.
Nicole: Mom, I'm glad you're not like Cinderella's wicked stepmother.
Me: How come?
Nicole: You'd make me work all day and then I still couldn't go to the pool later. Also, she's really ugly! (2 points for my best girl!!)
Nicole: Mom? Is it hard being the Mom?
Me: Yes, it is sometimes.
Me: It takes alot of work and sometimes the kids aren't always happy with you or the work you've done, the pay is lousy and you do it because you want to.
Nicole: You even have to do it when you don't want. Just like I don't want to clean my room, but I have to.
Me: That's right.
I love her and her insights. What a sweet girl she is.
