Unclear On The Concept

Sometimes my children do not understand what truly is and is not the role of a mother, and I have to take it upon myself to clarify.  Here are some actual sentences that I have said:

I am not a garbage can.  
I am not a water fountain.  
I am not a jungle gym.  
I am not your personal assistant.  
I am not a Kleenex.  
I am not your social secretary.  
I am not an ATM.  
I am not a math teacher.
I am not a laundromat.
I am not your personal chef.

Maybe someday they'll get it, but I'm not keeping my fingers crossed.

I use "I am not a tissue" a lot, and "I am not an octopus, I am not superwoman" also.
