20. Psychic Abilities...

Michael comes down the stairs today and says to me "Are you our of your creepy little mind?"

What? I hadn't said anything...

Maybe he's psychic. After all... I AM out of my creepy little mind.

19. Avoidance...

Michael was bugging his aunt Laura.

"Aunty Laura, is the mean fairy from Sleeping Beauty meaner than Jafar?"

To shut him up, his aunt Laura asks, "Michael, do you have any scientific proof that the mean fairy from Sleeping Beauty is meaner than the mean guy from Aladdin?"

Michael thinks about this for a brief moment and says, "Aunty Laura... I'm going to watch my movie now."

Poor kid...

18. Lessons Learned...

The other day, my mother asked Michael to put away his things.

Michael refused.

Again, his grandmother asked him to put away his things.

Exasperated, Michael says, "Grandma, when Cinderella's mom died, her daddy got her a new mom. My daddy is going to get me a new grandma when you die."

Translation: "We're getting a new and improved model, who will not tell me what to do."

Not exactly the lesson I wanted Michael to learn from Cinderella.
