I decided it was high time to really mop the floors (as opposed to Swiffer-ing), so I broke out the old rag mop and was getting after the month-old squished-on food deposited under the table by our one-year-old.
Jacob came down from upstairs and sat on the stairs watching me.
"Mom, you're swabbing the deck!"
At first I thought, "Ha ha, cute. He remembers the song from Baby Genius."
Then I thought..... WAIT A MINUTE! I am CAPTAIN of this ship! Why am I the one swabbing the deck???
It made me want to go all Captain Hook on the kids and start calling out orders.
