Five year old daughter, first thing in the morning: Mommy, Daddy, here is something I know. If you dream you have to go potty, you should not use the dream toilet. You should wake up and use the real toilet.

Mother and father: That is very good advice.

Five year old daughter: Mommy, when that kid said "'sup?", what did that mean?

Mom: It's a short way of saying "What's up?".

Eight year old son (in a teacherly way): And it's not proper English to say "What's up?" either. You are supposed to say "What's happening?".

Mom gets no slack

In the car...

Mom, singing softly to self: "I will go down with this ship..."

7 year old daughter: Mom? Are you singing?

Mom: Nope.

Mom, singing even more quietly: "I won't put my hands up in surrender..."

7 year old daughter: Mo-om! I can see you! Your lips are moving! No singing!

Mom: O.k.! O.k.!
