quote of the day

I had the following conversation with my six-year-old:

Mom, can I have an orange?

Sure, I'll get it in a minute.

Can I peel it?

Yes, I'll get it started for you.

Why can't I start it?

Because you aren't allowed to use knives.

Can I use a butter knife?

Maybe, for some things, under my supervision.

Can you see through stuff with your supervision?

har! har! snort! I love being a mom!

he learned it by watching you, mom.
i hope you told him that, yes you can see thru stuff, like bedroom and bathroom doors, so he better mind himself!
