Making small talk one day…
Me: …so, I’m doing this Effective Parenting course…
Rockstar: Yeah you should. It’s not easy to handle kids. We could sulk all day.
Me: Not turn to a life of crime?
Rockstar: <Not looking up> Nah, we know then we’d get in trouble.
Me: Well…. we could… not feed you, lock you in your room, take away your wifi until you tell us how awesome your life is and stop sulking?
Me: I take it you’re fine with that then?
Rockstar: Huh. Obviously that doesn’t work, we’d just run away or something. <looks at my parenting course notes> Oh, very good.
She says it’s a “Submaween.” (To be exact, she yelled “AIR-FWEE-BODY BE. QUIET! THIS. IS. A SUBMAWEEN!” Diva, much?)
But… what’s this, Rockstar playing with his sister’s girlie pink Lego?
And so they Lego-ed into the night…
