Upon Hearing the Following...

Upon hearing me apologize sheepishly for not coloring hard-boiled eggs this year, my 8 year old said: "Good.  I HATE coloring eggs."

Upon hearing that his Spring Break is another 8 days long, while his brother's is ending in 2 days, my 14 year old said: "I go back to school in a Beatles week; you go back to school in a Taylor Swift relationship."

Upon hearing me ask if he could have possibly predicted that his little sister would cry when he said something cruel and heartless to her, my 12 year old said: "I don't actually know what's going to come out of my mouth until it does."

Upon hearing all of this, I just adore my children.
