A Typical and Actual Conversation with Emily
Me – Emily, where is your rocket math? Get it and come up here.
Emily – (says something that I didn’t hear)
Me – Emily, what did you say? I didn’t hear you.
Emily – I have my rocket math folder, but I don’t want to do it.
Me – I don’t care if you want to do it, get it and come up here!
Em – Why do I have to do it?
Me – Because I said so!!!!
(Yes, very brown crayon-like parenting)
Em – Well, you shouldn’t sass me!
Where does she come up with this stuff?
No joke – I have never said this to her.
Need I say more?
