Me: .....so I know I'm not the most perfect mother in the world, but ...."
Him: [crickets chirping]
Me: What? I'm not the most perfect mother??
Him: I was just about to say you were.
Me: ??? You....
Him: I hesitated too long?
Me: Yes! And any brownie points you may have earned up until this point are GONE!
Him: Am I the most perfect son?
Me: Of course.
Him: No I'm not are you wouldn't yell at me all the time.
Me: No, then you wouldn't be normal.
Him: Yes, I would - I'd just be perfect.
Me: If you were perfect what would I have to blog about?
Him: Don't blog about me.
Him: It's my birthday!
Me: Yes, it is.
Him: You know, before I was born, there was no color.
Him: Yeah, before I was born the world was just black and white.
Him: It's true. It's just like that movie. Everything was black and white. And then....I was born.
Me: [sipping chardonnay thinking - where did this kid come from??]
