United States of Motherhood: Evil Comes Naturally

Evil Comes Naturally

I've been trying to get my little monsters to clean the playroom for weeks. Usually, after many threats and bribes, it works. This time, no luck! As an aside, it does double as a spare bedroom as well.

So, it just so happens my parents cancelled on us for their much anticipated Christmas visit on Sunday. I was furious because of all the preparation I put in, all the hopes my kids had, and after said parents did not heed my warnings that Seattle weather is unpredictable, so they should fly and not drive, they used weather as an excuse.

So how do I put that to my advantage? I tell the kids Grandma and Grandpa couldn't come because they didn't clean the playroom so they had nowhere to sleep. Ohhhh...the guilt. Yes, call me evil incarnate. No prada, but all she-devil.
