Boss of Me

I'm both disturbed and a little proud of my son's budding manipulation skills...

Kyle: Dad, I saw a new book at the back of the car. Can you get it for me?

Me: I don't know where that came from. It might be for somebody else. Let's wait and ask your mom.

Kyle: You know, Mom doesn't have to be the boss of you.

Me: She's not. We make decisions together.

Kyle: Well then, you can just decide to go get the book.

Me: No. Let's wait and ask who she bought it for.

Kyle: Hmmm. Seems like mom is the boss of you.

Me: Nice try.

Secret confession: I LOVE doing my daughter's hair. Pigtails, ponytails, clips, ribbons... Some of my favorite things. Now I need to learn to braid.

Kyle claims he has a rainbow colored baby named "Jackifer". It's a boy-girl mix and it only cries if it gets a splinter. Secrets can be so painful. Now I know how Maria Shriver feels.
