Ducky: “Will you make me mackenroni and cheese?”
Ducky: “Will you make me a drink?”
PaChomp: “Sure. Why aren’t you eating your maccaroni?”
Ducky: “It’s too hot.”
PaChomp: “Then blow on it.”
Ducky: “I did. It’s still too hot.”
PaChomp: “Then stir it while you blow on it.”
Ducky: “Why not?”
We have this same conversation over and over. This time I decided to fill him in on why….
PaChomp: “I’ll do some things, like heat up maccaroni and pour your juice, but I’m not going to baby you and do all the things you’re completely capable of doing yourself because I don’t want to be one of those Mom’s that does EVERYTHING for their kids.”
Ducky: “I don’t want you to do EVERYTHING. I just want you to do this ONE THING.”
I just can’t win.
