A fairy tale?!


Once upon a time, in a land far far away, (somewhere near Guam) there was a girl. This girl was smart, beautiful, interesting, sweet, artistic and more. Unfortunately for her, she lived in a perpetual state of “ that is soooo unfair!” Her life was very rough. She is expected to do her homework before playing on the lap top. She is not allowed to do said homework on her Mom’s bed while watching Zack and Cody. She is expected to help her brothers straighten up the living room. And when she throws a fit about it, her mean mom sends her to her room. Speaking of rooms, he poor girl has her own room. “ But that is not fair, I don’t have two people cleaning my room! “ she cries. Her “meanest Mom ever” makes her use he own money to buy a travel size packet of strawberry scented tissues! Life is never fair. The poor, poor girl. There is always so much expected of her.

How will this story end? Only time will tell…hopefully the meanest Mom ever will have lived to tell it!

This is hysterical, Marie!! You did a great job. Just remember Dad's favorite counsel: "This too shall pass!!" When she's married and the mother of a little girl!! Mom

This cracked me up! You know, I used to think my mom was so mean, but now that I am a mom I see how hard I made things on her. So, just like we did, she will probably realize all of this when her daughter is that age!

It's not just about being a girl - it is the oldest child syndrome (I'm still suffering from it and so are my parents). It is tough to train your parents for your younger siblings . . .
