because this is how she rolls

Driving home after a long day:

Me: What should we do when we get home?
M: I know! I'll watch my show while you make dinner for me!
Me: Ah, I see. Is that how it's going to be?
M: Yes! Because we are team, right? This is TEAMWORK! I LOVE teamwork!

Nicely done, kid. Very smooth.

Nice work, M. teamwork

PunditMom said...

I think she's been talking to PunditGirl again ... this sounds SOOOO familiar!

Sober Briquette said...

Whoa. I have a daughter who likes to help out in the kitchen, and sometimes, doing your part for the team means sitting on the bench (couch) and cheering (staying out of the way).

Don't knock it.

QT said...

How do I get M's position on the Team?

Magpie said...

Sounds like she's been watching the Backyardigans.

Momish said...

There is a certain pure logic to that. I'm gonna try that one! LOL

Beck said...

She's a clever kid.

Oh, The Joys said...

Genius!

Mrs. Chicky said...

She's got your number. Little smarty pants.

painted maypole said...

ha ha ha! Hey... anything that gets the kid from yanking on your arm while cooking, right? I've been there.

Jennifer said...

I want to be on M's team!

alejna said...

She is a clever little girl, your M.

kgirl said...

Lol! Being part of a 'team' certainly helps alleviate the feeling of just being someone's bitch, doesn't it?

mitzh said...

She's sooo smart! Love her!

ms chica said...

I'm going to try this approach on my husband. It'll leave him stunned even if I'm not cute enough to pull it off.

xiaolin momma said...

What a smartie! I need to take some tips from her!

Pgoodness said...

She's fabulous.

The teamwork in my house is very similar. I ask the boys to help me clean up and Matt pipes up "Well, mom, why don't YOU clean up and we'll watch"

UH, yeah...gotta love little person teamwork logic.

meno said...

This will give you hope. Tomorrow (Friday) my daughter has no school and i will be at my volunteer thing much of the day. So she's going to make dinner. How cool is that?

crazymumma said...

Oh M.

You have the world by the short and curly's already.

liv said...

I DARE someone to ask her for help. She'll make it feel like they helped themselves! :)

Janet said...

I like how she marketed the TV watching: Teamwork!

My kinda girl.

Joker The Lurcher said...

I love it.

Maybe she will be in politics.

Jen, when did she grow up? Dude.
