At the S. dinner table...
Hubby (to Amy): Wanna watch "Lost" with me tonight?
Amy (voice dripping with exhaustion and slight...ok, maybe more than slight...resentment): Can't. Have to get the house cleaned up and ready for my parents' visit. And then I have work to do for work.
Hubby: Ok, we can watch it another time.
Hubby leaves the dinner table and assumes his usual position as couch potato. DD#1, 8 year-old female replica of her father, hangs back after dinner.
DD#1: Mom, is there anything I can help with? I'm happy to help.
Amy, heart swelling with pride, eyes filling with tears, walks over to DD#1 and gives her a hug and kiss.
Amy: No, thank you, sweet girl. I appreciate the offer. That's really all I needed.
DD#1: Okay, well let me know if you need me to do anything.
What a difference an X chromosome makes.
