@Jenn_H_Scott: Listen, frozen meal instructions, never in the history of owning microwaves have I known the wattage of any microwave
@Jenn_H_Scott: Me: One day, when you're older, I'm gonna come to your house and ask you for a snack every 5 min and beg you to take me places and buy me stuff constantly
9yo: ...and I'll say no to all of it, just like you do
@Jenn_H_Scott: What's it called when you fall in love with your captors, even if they're obnoxious little tyrants?
No, no, not Stockholm Syndrome.
Ah, yes... "parenting"
That's the word.
@Jenn_H_Scott: My 8yo just asked my permission to say "shit" to express his anger, so don't tell me I'm not raising a polite kid.
@Jenn_H_Scott: It's okay, everyone. I know my 3yo's screams sound like his leg was run over by a lawn mower, but he's just got some fuzz stuck to his thumb
@Jenn_H_Scott: 7yo: Why can't I have coffee?
Me: It'll make u even more energetic than u already are
7: But u drink it all the time& u never have energy!
