 both my kids have projects to work on this long weekend (they have mon & tues off) & on our way home this afternoon (my son had a b-day party this morning & afterwards i went to the eye dr to get mine & my daughter's glasses adjusted, then we went to the shoe store next door to look for shoes she needs for her ceili band outfit) i told them both we were working on their projects when we got home.  we have things going on sun & mon & i didn't want them to wait till after i got home from work tues to do the entire project, doing a little bit each day would be the easiest for us all.  so i told them we didn't have to do it all today but we were going to work on them a bit before their papi got home (it's a beautiful day here & he wants to go play put put, to a corn maze or something).  i also informed them that if they decided to goof off & play around rather than work on their projects i wasn't going to help them which left them the choice to do it themselves (which my little guy couldn't do as he can't read) or not do it & get a zero.  well they decided to play around when they got home so i simple told them i'm not offering to help out on these projects again & they are on their own.  so they are now in their room discussing how mean i'm being.  oh well!  they were warned!

Whenever my kids tell me I am mean I tell them I must be doing a good job then.

 lol!  they've never told me to my face but they do "whisper" behind closed doors how "i'm not being nice", "not being fair", etc.  i just laugh & let them have their vents.
