You Can’t Always Get What You Want

June 20, 2008

Sunday mornings are hectic around our house.  Since it’s usually my only day off, I sleep in until the last minute, then am extremley rushed to get everyone and everything ready for church. 

Recently, my oldest was taking a bath, whilst I was standing in the bathroom getting ready.  I asked him to wash himself, to save time. 

Him:  “You wash me.”

Me:  “No, you wash yourself today.”

Him:  “I don’t want to.”

Me:  “Well son, sometimes we have to do things we don’t want to do.  It’s a fact of life.  Even grown-ups sometimes have to do things they don’t want to do.”

Him:  “Exactly, you don’t want to wash me, but you’re going to have to, because I’m not doing it.”

Sometimes he’s just too smart. 

And yes, I did wash him.
