This is quick. Doesn't need to be long. But just about sums up the life in many households.
The other day I had purchased tickets for a cool activity for Wednesday (half-day) typically "daddy days" for Jake. It's the best day of the week for Chris, his weekend, and he gets to play all day.
This week, Chris told Jake how excited he was to get to have a "family day".
And que the crying.
Jake was having none of it.
To Chris he said, "it's supposed to be daddy day, just stinky boys day, no mommy!"
To me he said, "Mommy does too much like a teacher-like things, and Daddy lets me do whatever I want!"
Game. Set. Match.
