You know what this is?




This is a kid who is as close to disobeying as he can possibly get without technically incurring a punishment.

At my older son's basketball game Declan kept begging to go out and play in the hallway. I repeatedly told him no. He said he was going to go out there anyway, no matter what I said. I told him he'd be in big trouble if he did.

So this is where he sat, for the whole game, with his back turned toward me for most of the time.

He put himself in the corner!

Earlier tonight, in Target....

Devin: "Mom, do you want a piece of gum?"

Me: "What flavor?"

Devin: (looks at package) "Natural and artificial flavor".

ever notice


If I am trying to get my children into bed, and it is 8:58, and I say "get into bed, it is 9:00" They will quickly correct me that it is NOT 9:00, it is ONLY 8:58.

And yet, this same child, when asked her age will round up as much as 9 months. She just turned 10 two weeks ago. By next month she'll be telling people she is 11.

Collin - standing in the pantry, "can I have a snack please"
Me- "Not right now, I am making dinner".
Collin (to himself) "I asked nicely, now it's time for plan B."
Me- "and no candy either!"
Collin- "But mom, that was plan B!"



Sorry, the video isn't working. I'll fix it later!

I am sitting on the couch with Declan (6). My daughter Regan (12) comes in to ask me a question about how to set up an account on line that she is trying to do. She tells me that she put all of her information in, but she can't find her user name.

Declan listens to all of this, and then asks, "Regan, what is your loser name?"

Overheard just now...



Declan, you are my servant. Make me something to eat. Cheese sandwich, please. No crust!
