Sophie's World

So... Sophie & Sydney are playing house this morning. Sophie says "I'll be the mom" and Sydney says "I'll be the dad." Then, Sophie starts laughing at her and tells her she's dumb. So, of course, I cut in and reprimanded Sophie and asked why she called her sister "dumb". This is what followed:


Well, dads have to go to work all day long and watch football in the weekends. YUK!

Moms get to stay home all day and do fun things like make clothes and play on the computer.



Of course, I am feeling my blood boiling inside of me. I want so badly to let her know that I am also a professional. That I have a college degree just like daddy and that I used to work full-time in an office just like daddy does and that her and her sister used to go to daycare until we figured out a way for me to stay home... for their benefit, not mine. I also want to ask her who she thinks cleans this house all day and does the grocery shopping and drives her around to school and swim lessons and playdates... And just as I'm feeling like a sad 1950's stereotype, she adds:


And moms get to pick what we're having for dinner and dads have to eat it even if they don't like it.


ROTFL!!!!!!! Needless to say, I lost my train of thought.

  4. That is so funny! I love her view on the world. Isn't that so how it is? Little girls usually want to grow up to be a mommy. Don't get me wrong, being a mom is great, but it's so much harder than you think it is going to be. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Your girls sound like my daughter... funny and innocently honest - what a great way to be. Lets hope it lasts well into adulthood. Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your music selection - especially Blister in the Sun. I am 34 and listened to that when I was in middle school. Occasionally I will hear it and sing it very loudly to my husband's annoyance - it makes for a great few minutes!!!!

  7. HAHA! Yep, but when you are brutally honest as an adult people don't always find it "endearing" ;)
