Real life conversation with our "almost" 15 year old son today.
"Mommy, can I go to Sam's tonight?"
"We'll see...how today goes and how helpful you are!"
(son cleans kitchen for added points)
(other line rings while son is speaking to his girlfriend)
"Where's you mom?"
"let me talk to her!"
"Well...I'm on the other line!"
(silence wondering if said son realizes who he is talking to)
"You know...it's free, if you call her on her cell phone!"
(later that day)
"Mommy can I go to Sam's?"
(long stare, smirk, dibelief)
"You realize that your dad told me what you said to him on the phone don't you?"
leaves the room.
(While eating dinner)
"I'll clean the dishes after dinner!"
