"Mooom, She Said 'Bored!'"

This is my oldest daughter and Pod #2. She is seven and quick as a whip. Of all my Pods, she has wit.

Every house has their different cuss words. Some of the kids' friends can't say "stupid." I think "shut-up" is a common one. Growing up, we couldn't say "poop" or "pus." My house? "Bored" is a swear. If the children say it, it is an immediate job--dishes, vacuum, toilet, whatever. I am of the firm belief that if you are bored, you are boring. Find something to do.

Yesterday, I asked the children to help me do some work in the yard. This little pill said, "But I don't have to help. I didn't say I was bored!"

Nice Try.
