“Do you want Cap’n Crunch?” I asked Chooch in an attempt to be a mom.

“Yeah, I already said that I want it later,” he replied in his patented drawl of sass, mockery and exasperation – your typical teenage side dish.  I always have to pull back from flicking him.

“OK. So you want it later,” I reiterated, making sure I got it right because god only knows with him.

“It is later now,” he yelled. “Go get it!” SEE??

And as I came over here to preserve this lovely conversation in my blog, he appeared next to me and said, “Make sure you tweet about it, too.”

Yes, Your Majesty.

  1. Ohhh Erin… I’m laughing but that attitude has got to be frustrating. If I talked to my parents like that, my dad would have yelled at me until I was in tears.

    So when does he start preschool?

    • OMG Jenn, he acts like I’m so beneath him sometimes! All I can do is sit there and stare at him in bewilderment. He’s um, a real joy sometimes. You would love him!

  2. oh, yeah… alpha is always asking me, “Did you facebook that?”

  3. Oscar tells me how to drive. And people laugh when I call him Il Duce……
