The Land of NeverandAlways

Dear Children (here in referred to as royal subjects), 

I am renaming our kingdom, Here on out we will refer to it as the Land of NeverandAlways. Henceforth ruled by Queen B (do I really need to explain).

Daily at our house I never and or always do something to torture you poor delightful subjects. Some recent examples that you have brought to my attention: 

You never let me/us go first, do that, play with this, eat cake for dinner, try and break up all the ice in the baby pool out back when it's 45 degrees outside or make a yuck bucket in the backyard that is filled with sidewalk chalk, dirt, water, leaves, bugs, plastic toys and dog poop (true story, I am a real bummer of a mom)

You always let him/her go first, pick dinner, take out the recycling (their odd little ducks), get in the car first, sit there, do this, do that.

How come I always have to get dressed, eat breakfast, put away my laundry, put my shoes away, go to school, brush my teeth, was my hair, pee poop and wipe my own butt (really this is a true fight in my house but that is another blog).

Blank never has to get dressed, put away their shoes, eat veggies, drink milk, clean their room, set the table, take out the trash or do any of the million things you ALWAYS make me do.

I am so glad that you are embracing the ideals and of NeverandAlways and hope that you will continue to bring examples to my attention (because I love to hear what you have to say).

Your loyal and loving Queen B

I am pretty sure that never and always were used alot when I was growing up---and I turned out ok :) Maybe your kingdom could have principalities---I am guessing my daughter would say that I could be the governor of the NoVA location.
