Last night I was tucking Cora into bed and she didn't want to let of my neck.  She said "No mom, please don't go".  I told her I had to go downstairs and finish up my "mommy works".  She asked what that meant...

Me: Well I have to do the dishes, wipe up the table, clean off the counter, and lots of other things
Cora:  Wow.  Being a mommy is realllly boring.
Me:  Nah.  Being a mommy has great parts - like having kiddos like you and Milly.  Those are the really great parts.  But yeah, the cleaning parts aren't so much fun.  But, they're my job!  Sometimes we all have to do things we don't like doing.
Cora:  Well, when I'm a mommy I'm not going to do those things.  I'm just going to play with my kids!
