I like the "supervise the kids" one. Remember the days when we did ALL of the manual labor? ALL the dishes, ALL the laundry, ALL of the cooking and cleaning ourselves? Not like I don't do any of it anymore, but it has definitely changed to more of the supervising for me now, also.

Great list! Life isn't so very different in Australia than in NY, is it? Great picture choice, although I do prefer the simplicity of heating my water electrically. :)
