yanbu. There's chimney sweeping too. Someone on here said they knew an old relative who used to tie the children to the dining table so she could do housework. Shouldn't laugh, but I can see where they are coming from .
In my next life (think it may be to late for the current DCs) my children are going to obey me,and their Father,instantly and without question. And they are going to eat up the bread and milk,or bread and butter (or jam - but of course not both) without moaning.
