The Price Of Parenting

| Related | April 3, 2016

(My eight-year-old son is a little under the weather this morning, so I decide to take him to my office instead of sending him to school.)

Son: “I don’t want to go to your work. I want to go to school.”

Me: “Come on. You’ll get to play on my phone all day.”

Son: “Okay.”

Me: *jokingly* “Everyone’s got a price.”

(My teenage daughter, who is getting ready for school at the same time, pipes up.)

Daughter: “What’s mine?”

Me: “Junk food from 7-11.”

Daughter: “Oh, yeah. I don’t know why I even asked that.”
