"Mommy! If you don't let me watch TV I'll call the police!"
There are days when you think caring for your kid with special needs takes so much out of you. And then there are days like today, when you're cooped up with the kids because it's a slushy, icy mess outside and suddenly it occurs to you that your child with special needs is actually the easier one of your two. A few choice quotes from a certain five-year-old:
"Your teeth are yellow."
"You are a cranky lady!"
"Waaaaaaaah! I hurt my nose on the window!"
"I'm. Wearing. My. Pajamas. All. Day."
"See if I care!"
"Come on, big boy, let's box!"
"I'm only drinking juice! No more milk!"
"Waaaaaaaah! Max stepped on my toe!"
"I am NOT going to listen to you!"
"Time outs are for babies!"
"My belly hurts! I want pizza with PEPPERONI! It'll make it feel better!"
"Waaaaaaaah! I want to watch TV!"
"Maaaaaa-aaaaaax, you like BLACK! Only BLACK! Max doesn't like purple!"
"I said I want PEPPERONI!"
"You're NOT going to leave me home and go on the Disney Cruise! I know!"
"Waaaaaaaah! Max pulled my hair!"
"I don't like you!"
"Hey, you got a penis!"
"Mommy! If you don't let me watch TV, I'll call the police!"
