While trying to get folks ready for the day, lunches packed (for me & DH) and meds taken (me and the Stooges), I had this conversation with the youngest Stooge, Moe:
"Come take you medicine right NOW, Moe!"
"Why? I don't want to! You're mean, Mom."
"I'm the nicest mother you'll ever have."
"And the meanest!" (Moe stuck out his tongue at me.)
It's good to be recognized. Even if I am the Meanest Mom in the World.
