Jack: Mom, I want to do science.
me: Like what?
Jack: I don’t know, like with my microscope maybe? Can we make the baby brine shrimp experiment?
me: You lost the instructions so I have no clue how to do that.
Jack: Nuh-uh! It’s in the toy bin over there!
Jack: YOU go get it.
me: That’s a little too bossy for me. And I have to finish this school paperwork first.
Jack: So are you going to sit around all day being lazy or are you going to help me?
me: (dagger look) Would you like to try that again?
Jack: Sighhh. Sorry!! I can’t do this by myself. I need your brain!
me: (putting the papers down) Fine…
Jack: (jumps off his chair) I’ll go get a saw.
