What Makes the World Go 'Round

He's already learned it. And it ain't love, my friends.


Mr. P: Mommy, I really want to paint.

Me: I don't know, bud, there's not a lot of time before dinner and I don't know if I want take all of the stuff out.

Mr. P: Pleeeeaaaase Mommy!

Me: Agh, I don't think so.

Mr. P: If you let me paint Mommy, I will pay you.

That's a little bit better than J telling me today that she would buy lunch for me, if I gave her money.

Okay, it made a lot more sense in my deliriously tired mind....

HA! Okay sorry but that was funny! I suspect I'll be in for the same thing soon as the husband already bribes Christopher with money. He saves it for his Hotwheels.

Ah these kids :-)

You should have taken him up on it and then cleaned him out. lol

Pay you with what? Buttons? The contents of your purse/wallet? Money that he would have hit you for a loan for?

I would have got him to clean the toilet. Or your toenails. Better still PAINT your toenails. The paint on the skin wears off pretty quickly, I know from experience. Half a bottle of red and the sudden urge to paint nails the same colour.... not a good idea.

How much does he have on him? Might be worth putting dinner on the back burner. ;)

That's hilarious!
I finally linked and blogrolled Teeny but I wasn't able to leave a comment on Teeny's blog. I tried and tried but my comments just kept disappearing!

How much did he fork over? Or is he like my kids and pays you in kisses?
