Conversation with Seeger....

Me: "Seeger, before you cousins come over to play today, you need to pick up your room."

Seeger: "Awwwww....."

Me (pretending I didn't hear him): "Please go upstairs and pick up your Candyland game and your soft things."

Seeger goes upstairs and comes down five minutes later.

Me: "Did you pick up your game and soft things?"

Seeger: "Yes."

Me: "Great! Now go back up stairs and pick up the rest of the toys in your room."

Seeger goes upstairs and come down five minutes later.

Me: "Did you pick up the rest of your toys?"

Seeger: "No, I just closed the door so you couldn't see them."

Conversation with Nicklas....

We're watching tv and something sappy happens in the show. I start tearing up and sniffling, trying to be discrete so no one in my family makes fun of me for crying. I hear Nicklas making strange noises too.

Me: "Aw Nicklas, are you crying about this show, just like me?"

Nicklas: "No mom, I'm trying not to laugh at you for crying about this show!"

He and The Polack bust out laughing.

So much for discretion.

The movie crying reminds me of someone else. Hmmm. :)

And I think Seeger and I share cleaning techniques.
