Laundry Day

Standard

Me, emptying The Boy’s laundry basket: “Why are there so many clothes in here? I just emptied this two days ago.”

The Boy: “I like to change my clothes when I get home from school.”

Me: “So you take off sweatpants & a t-shirt & put on sweatpants & a t-shirt?”

The Boy: “Yeah. I don’t want to smell like chalk & despair & crushed dreams.”

He’s Onto Me

Standard

My job requires working weekends so I have a day off during the week. A fact which apparently boggles The Boy’s mind.

The Boy: “Sometimes I think you just send us to school so you can enjoy your day off.”

Me: “That’s right. I can’t wait for you to get out of this car so I can go home & do laundry & wash dishes & clean the bathrooms! Yippee!!”

The Boy: “I’m sensing sarcasm.”

Irresponsible Kids

Standard

Me: “Why is it that the laundry never makes it to the basement?”

The Boy, shaking his head: “I know, right? Irresponsible kids…. Wait… I’m one of them.”
