Three Mothers?

Sometimes I get confused who is the mother around here;

"Make sure when you cook the macaroni you stay by it so the water doesn't get high."

"You need to put underwear on Joshua when I'm at school."

"Please tell the kids that they should not leave toys where they'll get stepped on."

"Next time you make it, you should do..."

"So when Drew is one, you're not going to give him a bottle anymore, right?"

Sometimes I respond politely,
"Thanks, but I'm the mom."

Sometimes I respond not so politely
(and with a slightly elevated voice),
"I am the mom. Don't tell me what to do."
