Earlier today, this exchange between a child and his mother...
Son: Mommy, is being a mommy hard? Being in charge of so many kids.
Mother: Hmmm. I don't know if I'd call it hard. Maybe busy. Yeah, that's a good word for it.
Son: Sometimes you yell at us.
Mother: Yes, that's because I'm impatient. I shouldn't be.
Son: I like discipline. If you love discipline, you love knowledge. If you don't, you're stupid.
Mother: A fool.
Son: Sometimes I want to just ask for a spanking.....But I don't.
