Monday Minute: Not-Quite-Smooth-Enough Operator

After losing ipod James tried to sweet talk me back into letting him play with it. I think he thought he was being subtle…

James is in italics, I’m in bold.


(In the shower)

Rinse off and get out please.

I can make you happier than you’ve ever been.


When I get clean in the shower without whining, right?

Pretty happy.

Really happy, right?



(Changed into my PJs – a bleach-stained tank top and sweats)

Wow, that shirt looks really nice on you, mom.


It looks great, right? 

I said thank you James.

So, what can I do?

Want to help me get dinner ready?

Aren’t you happy?

Sure I am.

The happiest?

Am I happier than you? (trick question for a kid trying to prove how amazingly happy he is now)

You’re the happiest woman alive. I’m the happiest boy.

You lost your ipod, James. Right?

What?! Aren’t you proud of me?

I‘m proud of your behavior for the last 30 minutes.

(grumbling to self) I made you happy. I want that ipod now.


You look nice.
