I’ll die!

Mom: Maddie I can not look at the computer I am busy spring cleaning. Do you know what spring cleaning is?

Maddie:  Yeah, it is cleaning in the spring so how come you are cleaning in the summer?

Mom: Spring cleaning is when you clean out your closet, drawers, vacuum under the furniture, clean the blinds, and wash the walls. 

Maddie: Oh, I know how to do that.  

40 minutes later and a new “things to do list” for madeline

Mom: here is a list of things that I would like you to do Tuesday.  It is about 2 hours* worth of work. 

Maddie: Two hours of work, I will die.  I can not work for 2 hours! 

(her favorite thing to do with a list is to mark it with smiley faces and or frowny faces)

*(remember that I give her an excessive amount of time to complete any task so then when the task is complete I can show her that it was not that dreadful)

    She might have actually died if she had done two hours worth of work, but like you say it takes her two hours to do even one hours worth of work. I think it is funny that you think she is going up to Lindsey’s to help…

    Well if she does die, then you already know she does not want black rosses at the funeral, so your up on that.
