Me: Adam, wake up. Before you take a shower, you need to take the dog to potty.
Adam: Jumps in the shower (dog is in the bed)
Me: Did you hear what I said? I told you to take the dog out before you got in the shower.
Adam: Did he jump off the bed?
Adam: He will be fine.
Me: No, he will pee on the bed! If he pees on the bed, you are in so much trouble! I am so tired of having to take care of everything in this house! I told you that the dog is your responsibility in the mornings.
Adam: I have been responsible for two weeks Mom! I need a break!
Me: I have been responsible for 14 years, son! That is when I became a mom!! It’s a full time job!!
Adam: Looks like someone needs a vacation!!!
*The dog urinated on the bed! Adam is grounded. You may ask why I didn’t take the dog out instead of arguing? I asked myself the same question.
Adam may be right about a vacation!
