Among other Constitutional rights which don't apply in my house

4yo to 8yo (regarding a Lego piece, I'm pretty sure, since this is the only thing they ever fight about): Hey! I had that first!

8yo to 4yo (blithely unaware that I was within earshot): Life isn't fair!

Me to 8yo: Life in general isn't fair. Want to know something specific about life that isn't fair? I'm allowed to say that, and you're not.

Thanks for choosing to follow my new blog. I have made a promise to keep this one up more often and try to be a little more interesting.

Hope you are having a groovy Wednesday.

Nicely done! Dang those rights according to mama.

enc said...

I love how you pulled rank on the little fellows.

Suze said...

Well done!

Steve said...

he will remember that line and use it on his children!

SiS--I'm finding that for me, I can either be interesting or post frequently, but not so much both. Sigh.

Lisa--I know...all powers not delegated to the children are reserved to the mother. I have delegated no powers to them as yet.

enc--they are the only people whom I outrank at the moment, so I have to pull rank where I can

Suze--thank you!

Steve--I feel pretty sure that he will, since he got the "Life isn't fair" from me in the first place.
