Conversation of the day, actually:
Me: Boys, you need to clean up your playroom.
B: But we want you to heeeelp us.  (let me add, this was VERY whiny!)
Me: I didn't make this mess, so why would I clean it up?  You boys need to take responsibility for your actions.  Do you know what that means?
P: No...
Me: It means that when you do something, you need to take care of it.  So when you make a mess in the playroom, you need to clean it up. 
P: But when Daddy makes a mess, you just go right after him and clean it up.  Why is that?  Why do you clean up Daddy's messes but not ours?

And right then, I had to turn away and do a little silent laugh.  Oh these boys crack me up.
