I want to share a little secret with you all...

Motherhood is a thankless job.

Oh, wait?  Most of you already knew that?!

Why am I always the last one to figure these things out...as evidenced by this 28 second video you're about to watch.

When I first played this video, my computer was on mute and I didn't realize it. I thought, "what a pleasant bike ride everyone is having." :)

Kim said...

. . . and then off he rides, leaving his servant in the dust.

Eva Gallant said...

Slightly Askew Studios said...

Karen Peterson said...

Oh those kids!

Every time you post something like this, I have another reason to apologize to my mother for my entire childhood.

Nezzy said...

Mama said there'd be days like this! She probably had no clue what you were in for!!!

Gee, the little fella just left ya standin' in the dusty trail didn't he!

Thanks for the laugh sweetie.

God bless and hopefully somebody will thank you today! :o)

KSK said...

Hahahaha! I shouldn't laugh... I'm sure I did that to my parents, and I'm sure my daughter will do it to me ... ... .. sigh. ;)

Jenn said...

you didn't even need my help! You crack me up!!! :) Ahh... all the screams for me to look forward too!

Jennifer said...

The true secret you need to let us in on is that invisibility cloak your wearing can we use them to disapeear all the time or just when our kids are screaming at us like that lol! great video

Deborah said...

I love it! lol! Thanks for sharing :)

Colleen said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that talks like that to my kids! LOL "Are you serious?"~~Love it!

Heather said...

I love it! I don't know why kids think they can order us around like that - oh because we do it. *sigh*

Boobies said...

This was SO funny. Primarily because I think our kids are related! Great video...we def. don't get the props we deserve.

klahanie said...

Aha, and being a single dad is a thankless job :)

Barbara said...

Too funny!

Twinpossible said...

Oh yes it is. And Helene, imagine that big of a mouth 24-7 INSIDE of your home, because the child can't grasp what the hell an indoor voice is, or is partially deaf or something.

The voice I heard on the video clip is very 'normal' to me sadly, and all too familiar.

Hopefully, we'll get thanks and praise down the line. It's all I'm banking on, LOL.

Rebecca @ Unexplained X2 said...

So glad that I'm not the only one who talks to my kids like they're real people and not angels put on this Earth...I love it.

Thanks for posting this. I got Hailey all set up with her paints, paper, and her drink and she loudly said, "THANKS DADDY!" When I asked her why she said that so loud, she said, "so he'd hear me at work."

Jayme said...

Looks (and sounds!) like my family!

The Mother said...

Not entirely thankless.

When they get to be about 20, you suddenly become a much better mom and role model, and they start calling you for advice and companionship. They MIGHT let it slip, somewhere, that they appreciate you.

Best I can do. I live for those moments.

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
