Mom : it’s time to go to bed, sweetie.
Boy : but I don’t want to.
Mom: yes but it’s time. Let’s go.
Boy (whining) : but it’s not fair…..
Mom: I know, sunshine, but sometimes we have to do what we don’t want to do because it’s the right thing.
Boy: Fine, when I’m a mommy I will let my kids stay up late AND eat chocolate. So there.
Mom: darling, you can’t be a mommy – you are a boy and boys grow up to be men, and when their wives have babies the men become daddies.
Boy: but Mom, you told me I could be anything I wanted to be when I grow up. I want to be a mom and you can’t stop me… (stomp stomp stomp)
