    The wine gets older, “why can’t I have a new car/dishwasher/fur coat/diamond ring. Later I know I’ll hear, “Why can’t you donate your body to science and save the cost of a funeral.

    How about “Moooommm! She’s not sharing!” or “Moooommm, I really need this toy!”

    Don’t forget the ever popular “I don’t wanna get up for school.” and “why do I hafta clean my room? Its my room.”.

    “If I can just have this_ I will never ask for anything again.” I loved that one. Used to remind my son when he would inevitably ask for something else.

    And the classic dry taste of “He / she’s LOOKING at me!”

    “Why do I hafta clean my room? Its my room.”

    I don’t think I’ve EVER heard a satisfactory answer to that question.

    And no, “Because I said so” is not a satisfactory answer to ANY question. Not when I was a kid, not now.

    I always said, “Because it’s not YOUR room. It’s MY house, & I’m just letting you live in that room, so you will live by my rules.”

    I like this because my wife and I are just leaving the house to go to the Texas wine trail. After livng in northern Ca. for 50 years I was amazed to find out they have winerys in Texas. We raised 5 kids so we had plently of experiance with the other whinery as well.

    I always told my kids have a treasure hunt in your room by cleaning it you might be surprise by what you find. They both made a game of it and got it done. Lots of trash. No whine now there unemployed adults. Not very many jobs here either a lot of out-of-workers looking.
