Kids Say The Funniest Things

The Boy is supposed to be cleaning his room this morning.

He begins speaking to me about negotiating this deal.

"Mom, can I do half now and half when I get back [from his friend's house]..."

"No."

"MOM! I was talking and you just said 'No' and I was just saying that I could do half now and half later. It's not bad, I just have to put my clothes away..."

"Don't forget the clean clothes you let fall behind your toybox."

"MOM! You did it again! That's why I want to do half now and half later! If I have to do all of it now, it will make it hard to be lazy!!"

/Mom laughs until she chokes/

Read this to my beloved this morning -- and I quote:

"Please forward that to me. The whole thing. I need to study this strategy." LOL
