Me: How was school?
Me: Did you get lots of hugs and kisses?
Andy: No. Oh, mom, we went to the parade today.
Me: The parade? For what?
Andy: To see the clowns….AND I HATED IT!
Andy: Mom, they are watching that movie and I want to watch Handy Manny.
Me: Boys, watch what is on Disney channel please, I don’t want you watching movie with too much action and violence before school.
Sam: Mom, this movie doesn’t have violence. It’s the same people who own that cereal called Fruity Pebbles, only instead of cartoons they are real people.
Andy: Mom, can we have ice cream with Wipeout tonight?
Me: Yeah, maybe. I have to ask dad.
Andy: Why do you have to ask dad?
Me: ‘Cause he was in charge today and I have to find out how you behaved.
Andy: But, aren’t you the boss of the kids?
