Conversations With a 9-Year-Old: I'm a Pokemon Character

While watching Pokemon with my kids, a female character popped up on the screen....

CHASE: Oh, man.... She is EXACTLY like you, Mom.

MOM: (Not knowing the character at all) Oh yeah? How so?

CHASE: She's just so confident and she's always cheering everyone on.

I just LOVE that he sees me that way. Warm fuzzy!

Conversations with a 5- and 9-Year-Old: Boyfriends

Dinner conversation:

MOM: After dinner you'll need to brush your teeth.

CHASE: Ugh! I hate my life and everything in it! Except my friends and my games.

CHLOE: What about Mom?

CHASE: She should love herself.

MOM: I do love myself!

CHLOE: Yeah, you love everyone!

CHASE: Ew! That means Mom has like a billion boyfriends!

MOM: Well of course! I mean... DUH!

CHASE: (bursts into hysterical laughter)

CHLOE: What? Having a boyfriend isn't funny! IIII have a boyfriend!

MOM: Oh yeah? What's his name?

CHLOE: I don't remember.

We have it all together over here, folks! Haha!
