Hard to fit it all into her schedule

I know kids today are often over-scheduled, but this is ridiculous. . .

I was putting the Girl Child to bed last night and she and I had the following exchange:

Me: Now that you are about to turn 7, your mother and I think it might be the right time to start giving you an allowance.

Her: [Very excited] Great! What can I start doing around the house?

Me: Well, we haven't decided yet but I think you could start by making your bed every day.

Her: I could do that [tone: earnest] but it would really chew into my time.

I had to leave the room when she said that so she wouldn't see me laugh.

Oh dude. I've said it before and I'll say it again: you're screwed. Triple threat: beauty, brains AND a sense of humor. Sheeeewww. (ROFL, btw)

Too funny. :)

By the way, coming back to your comments on wondering if you should continue writing - even if you just write things like this from time to time, it'll be something very special to look back on years from now. So sounds to me like it's worth it.

Thanks for the comments, y'all. I really have to get better at responding to them. It isn't htat I don't appreciate them; I do. I am just so damn lazy. . .

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
