Role reversal!

Wouldn't it be great if we could run into our kids bedrooms at three o'clock in the morning and yell something like, "Hey! I'm poopy! I need a diaper change! Can you change it right now? And I need some water! And not that water, that's old water! I want new water!"

Of course, then our kids would say something like, "Shut up and go to bed! Do you have any idea what time it is? And what do I look like to you, a Diaper Genie? Change your own diaper! And why can't you just drink the water you have on your dresser? Are you too good for your water?"

But then we'd just start to cry and we wouldn't stop until our kids were forced to let us sleep in their bed, and then we'd spend the rest of the night kicking them and rolling into them and otherwise making it impossible for them to get any sleep.

Ah yes, that would be great. Too bad it's the other way around.

you forgot about the part where you wake up in the morning and they are lying on your pillow with their whole body and you have a horrendous neck cramp for days.
