My Daughter should be the mom!

Tonight as we were on our way home from picking my husband up from work. We decided to go through a drive thru and let the girls get an ice cream cone, Because I am just that nice of a mom. So of course when we stop to order my girls think we are going to get out of the car and immediately unbuckle I said to them “hey, we are just going through the drive thru put your buckles back on”.

My 6 year old can accomplish this task but my 4 year old has a little trouble so I asked my 6 year old if she would help her sister buckle her seat belt. she of course complained so then I said ok no one gets ice cream until everyone is buckled. As she leaned over her younger sister to help her I couldn’t help but here her in a quiet voice say “I feel like I am the mom”

This was Hilarious to me!! I mean it really felt like one of those just you wait moments. You’ll find out what’s it like when your grown up and have your own crazy, dramatic, restless, wonderful adorable children. just you wait!

( I had to add in some good adjectives in at the end because as we all know there are many good time as well!)

    >Ha! That is just typical 7/8 year old behavior. My niece says things like that all the time. It is like the have the capability but not the discipline to be a helper. If they only knew how much we do for them LOL:)
