Writer's Workshop - - 4/9/09

Today's writing promt I chose was:

2.) What is your role in the household?

My role in the household is Princess!! Isn't that great. Oh wait... I meant like Cinderella.. before her prince comes....



My hubby is lazy by nature, he will admit this to you. He simply does not see the mess. He knows that I will take care of it because I am OCD by nature. He also has ADHD so he needs constant stimulation which is not really happening while cleaning and does happen during Wii playing.



But I love my hubby dearly and would do anything for him. It makes me feel almost June Cleaverish to take care of things around the house. If I didn't have to work then I would have no problem being the perfect Stepford/50's house wife. But for now I am Cinderelly:

[Cinderella:]
Cinderella, Cinderella
All I hear is Cinderella, from the moment I get up
till shades of night are falling
There isn't any letup, I hear them calling, calling
Go up and do the attic and go down and do the cellar, you can do them
both together
"Cinderella."

How lovely it would be
if I could live in my fantasy
But in the middle of my dreaming
they're screamingat me
Cinderella

[Jack:]
Every time she'd find a minute
That's the time that they begin it
Cinderelly, Cinderelly

[Stepsisters:]
Cinderella!

[Jack:]
Cinderelly, Cinderelly
Night and day it's Cinderelly
Make the fire, fix the breakfast
Wash the dishes, do the mopping

[Girl mice:]
And the sweeping and the dusting
They always keep her hopping

[Jack:]
She goes around in circles
Till she's very, very dizzyStill they holler

[Girl mice:]
Keep a-busy Cinderelly!
We can do it, we can do it
We can help our Cinderelly
We can make her dress so pretty
There's nothing to it, really
We'll tie a sash around it
Put a ribbon through it
When dancing at the ball
She'll be more beautiful than all
In the lovely dress we'll make for Cinderelly

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gonna help our Cinderelly
Got no time to dilly-dally
We gotta get a-goin'

[Gus:]
I'll cut with these scissors!

[Jack:]
And I can do the sewing!

[Girl Mouse:]
Leave the sewing to the women
You go get some trimmin'
And we'll make a lovely dress for
Cinderelly!

[Girl mice and Gus:]
We'll make a lovely dress for
Cinderelly!

Oh I know how you feel... I am so Cinderella in my house. 3 boys and not one of them does a thing. I can't stand messes and I think they make messes all day long. I tell my husband all the time he is in big trouble if anything ever happens to me. He will need a maid for sure.
