Getting Out Of Trouble Is A Fair Trade-Off

, , , | Related | February 6, 2018

(I am about three, and my mother and I get in a fight.)

Mom: “I am your mother!”

Me: “Not for long! Daddy’s gonna trade you in!”

Mom: “What did you just say?”

Me: “Daddy said that when you turn 40, he’s gonna trade you in for two 20s. Then, you won’t be my Mommy, and I won’t have to listen!”

(That is how my three-year-old self managed to get out of trouble by throwing my father completely under the bus. My mom is nearly 50 now, and my dad still hasn’t traded her in.)
