Boy Does This Suck For You

I was making beds in the guest cabin. Ruth entered the cottage, screen door banging in that fabulous only in the summer way. :

"Mommy, whatcha doin'?"

"Making the beds for your Aunt and her family. Want to help?"

"O-k. Mom, you make beds a lot here."

"Sure seems like it."

"I never see you do that at home. This is hard work."

"Next we need to make dinner for 20. Funny vacation, huh?"

"Yeah. Boy does this suck for you."

Oh, tell me, young one.

Loved your posts about the vacation- isn't it funny how they're not always so relaxing for MOM?

This was such a cute post! Hey, she calls it like she sees it, huh?

My niece said something similar to me once....she came over last summer to help me with the kids at the pool. She was so exhausted afterwards and she said, "I can't believe you do this every day..." and I said, "Yup, this is my life" and she said, "Your life really sucks". She was only 9 at the time!
