The other day I was talking to Neal-13 about whether he thought setting media limits, like the ones I mentioned here was an unreasonable thing to suggest to another parent. He was in the middle of an after-school bowl of cereal.
"Yeah. Like, nobody's parents do that, Mom," he replies drily, not looking up from his bowl of cereal.
"I mean, you know - other parents like US."
He puts his spoon down, looks over at me, and, with perfect comedic timing, says, "Mom, there really ARE no parents like you!"
I ran over to him, hugged him, and said, "THANK YOU for such a high compliment!"
Ah, I love that boy.
Good times here at the Raising Five house...
(BTW, I'm glad to know there ARE other parents like us, though! We need to keep encouraging each other!)
