I'm not saying today was one of those rare days, but the conversation made me smile regardless. That kid is so much like me, it's scary.
Liam: God mom, don't you think you went overboard a bit?
Me: Noooooo. In fact, I think I'll go buy a rug for the front door that says "ho ho ho, Merry Christmas" and then you can look at it every time you come home!
Liam: Ha. Ha. Ha.
Me: You're so ironic Liam.
Liam: I know right?
**Me rolling eyes SO HARD at that phrase, it's the most annoying ever and I have found myself spitting it out on more than one occasion**
Liam: You're weird.
Me: Don't say that! Hey, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to decorate your room while you're at your dads this weekend. Tinsel, lights, a little tree, it'll be FUN.
Liam: And then I'll tear it down.
Me: And then I'll put it back up and ground you.
Liam: And then I'll tear it back down.
Me: And then I'll put it back up and take your gifts back.
Liam:...okay, you win.
So, while I'm not actually planning on decorating his room it's nice to know that if I did, he'd suffer through it for the sake of presents.
