The thanks we get

You know what's great? When you hear your daughter laughing hysterically at the The Little Mermaid in the other room, and are so overwhelmed by the love for her that you cannot restrain yourself from rushing in, taking your darling child's angelic face in your hands and saying, "I love you more than anything in the world!" To which breathless declaration, she issues the reply, "GET OFF Mommy! I'm watching the MOVIE!"

Let's just say we don't get into the mothering racket for the thanks we get.
