Boy 2: Mom can we ride our bikes.
Me: No, I've been really busy today and I just want to relax. I don't want to come outside and watch you. (In 100 degree weather)
Boy 2: (whining) Come on, Mom!
Boy 1 : Lay off. Mom has done a lot for us today. (Atta boy!)
Boy 2: Okay. (Defeated)
Me: Thank you, Boy 1, for sticking up for me. (Proud Mother)
Mini Me: Do we get anything for sticking up for you? (Always negotiating)
Me: How about my undying love?
Mini Me: No. I mean something that shows us you love us. (Too smart for her own good)
