The other day Mr. Boy was relentless in begging to play on my phone. I was trying to hold him off during our ten minute drive to baseball. Surely, we can handle a ten minute car ride without Angry Birds.
Mr. Boy: Moooooom, why not?
Moi: Because I want to talk to you. Tell me something funny that happened at school today.
Mr. Boy: I don't really like talking, you know that I'm not the talking kind of guy. And nothing funny ever happens at school. School is boring.
Moi: Tell me something terrible that happened today at school.
Mr. Boy: Nothing happened
Moi: Did aliens invade your school today?
Mr. Boy: Stoooooooop! Mom, just let me play with the phone.
*notices pensive looking man waiting for the bus*
Moi: Mr. Boy what do you think that man is thinking about?
Mr. Boy: He's wondering why his mom won't let him play on her iPhone.
I could not help but burst out laughing, I mean c'mon, he gets at least two points for being witty. If only he was that determined in learning fractions.... how on earth am I going to survive the teenage years with this kid?
