Knitting stuff and going on and on.

Listen here, Kid!

Me: Time to get out!

The Kid: You said I wasn't going to be born until spring. This doesn't look like spring to me.

Me: Your room is done and sister supervised and approved.

The Kid: Let's see.

Me: The walls are painted and trim is up. Daddy did a pretty good job. He also scraped that popcorn paint crap off the ceiling for you.

Me: You even have a carpet. That's more than your sister has in her room.

Me: See. She got a "new" to her dresser and we re-arranged her furniture, but no carpet.

The Kid: Sorry lady. My rent is paid up to the 10th. I think I'll hang out here until then.

Me: No, come out now!

The Kid: Don't count on it. I'll see once the rent is up. [mutter,mutter]squatter's rights[mutter, mutter...]

Me: Crap. Must have gotten the stubborn from his father.

  • Not "stubborn" just "independently minded." It sounds like a strength in character that way.

    PS I am so happy the kid won't be born into a world with popcorn ceiling paint. That stuff is creepy.
