last night, my wife and i spent a good 20 minutes lecturing our son about cleaning up his toys every night, before going to bed.
then, as we were putting him to bed, my wife mentioned that her carpal tunnel syndrome (in both wrists) was acting up, and we should think about getting a cleaning lady, especially if we want to sell the house.
i concurred, so my wife asked my son if he'd like to help interview cleaning ladies in the upcoming days. we'll ask if they clean floors, and bathrooms, and such. he excitedly agreed to help, and then quite logically exclaimed, "and we'll ask them to clean up my toys!!!!"
when we stopped laughing, my wife retorted that he will continue to clean up his toys, so the cleaning lady can vacuum the floors without sucking up a toy.
so, he thought hard for a second, then started rubbing his wrists, saying "oh boy, mom. my wrists really hurt. i fell down and hurt them, and now i'll have to get a cleaning lady to pick up my toys..."
i laughed all night at my little scammer.
