Me: “We only have enough time to grab burgers before the movie.”

My Oldets, age 14: “And fries.”

Me: “We’ll get popcorn at the movie. It’s poor form to load up on French fries right before eating six cubic feet of popcorn.”

Oldest: “I want it all. And don’t judge my life choices.”


Just say no

Overheard at 14th birthday party…

“What if the most beautiful person in the world asked you to marry them?”

My Oldest, age 13: “Do I love them?”

Girl: “Doesn’t matter. They are the most person in the world. How would you say no to that?”

Oldest: “You open your mouth and say… No.”
