One side of a phone conversation between mother and son overheard at the Asylum today:

"If I get another email from your teacher like this you're grounded for life. Do you understand?? You do NOT have a medical condition that causes your EYES TO ROLL!!!"

If only the youngins would use their clever minds for something good!!

I always told my son he would have been a brilliant lawyer - had an answer for everything and could twist the truth like nobody's business.

Isn't it amazing how creative they can be when coming up with excuses - but give them a project to do and they come up with nuthin'!

I'm pretty sure I couldn't have that conversation with my son without breaking out laughing!

When younger daughter (Mandy) was about 10 or 12 (don't remember the age now), she had stepped on my last nerve one night and I told her she was in deep doo-doo. I also told my son to go "get me the wooden spoon" which caused Mandy great panic and she ran to the bathroom and locked herself in there! (It was the only room in the house with a door that could be locked. Her actions then made me even angrier than I was before, initially anyway. But unbeknownst to her, my son and I were both laughing too about her reaction. I told her if she didn't unlock the door -and fast -the consequences could get really dire, quickly. She made the mistake then of saying if she unlocked the door and came out that I could "Ground her for the rest of her life." Many years later, I still have occasion to remind her that she is grounded for the rest of her life - a move she did, herself! You know, as long as her brother or I am still around, she's never going to live that one down!

Pretty creative for a kid.

LMAO.......that sounds like my oldest son.

Once in first grade, no kidding, he came up with a 'very serious cat disease'. He 'had' to crawl around on the ground hissing and raking his "claws" at the other students.

Turns out, the disease went away with his playstation. And never came back! Funny!
