My Kids Protest Cleaning Their Rooms In The Most Politically Savvy Way Possible

My kids began to protest cleaning their rooms on Sundays.

PROTESTING CLEANING
“WE WILL NEVER CLEAN!”
NO MORE CLEANING
“NEVER EVER CLEAN”
CLEANING JUSTICE
“WE WANT JUSTICE FROM CLEANING!”

But the kids quickly realized that they didn’t have more than 50% of the cleaning vote┬ámaking change impossible. So they promptly revised their tactic proving they’re the most politically savvy people I know.

DAD CLEANS
“WE DON’T WANT TO CLEAN. YOU CLEAN. BY YOU I MEAN DAD.”
DAD CLEANS ONLY
“DAD YOU HAVE TO CLEAN”

“Now are you on our side, Mom?”

“Well, this is a pretty good deal. Let’s sign me up! Or just make Dad do that, too.”

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
