Bedtime, Conversations

When do I get a TV in my room?

 

Jack posed the question tonight after we watched Big Bang Theory.

me: When you’re 32.

Jack: I’m SEEErious!

me: When you’re a teenager?

Jack: My FRIENDS have TVs in their rooms!

me: We have a TV right here. You can use it anytime you want.

Jack: But I have to walk ALL the way down here from up there and that’s too much effort!

me: Get used to it. It’s good exercise. (omg I sound like my parents)

Jack: So I’ll NEVER have a TV?

me: In maybe 6 years? I don’t even have a TV in my room. So why would you get one?

Jack: What a life. How about watching PG-13 movies? Can I do that?

me: 6 years.

Jack: Sigh. Why do grown ups always say you’re only young once. Young stinks.
