Scenes from a life: Young Son

Setting: Young Son's room, 2004. Young Son, age 4, and Mom are having a heated discussion.
M: I need you to start picking up your toys now.

YS: (whining) I don't want to pick them up. I want you to do it.

M: (confident that logic will prevail) If I pick up your toys, I'm going to put them away in my closet for a week and you won't be able to play with them.

YS: (with a slow grin) That's OK. You do it. I only want this one toy.

M: (sotto voce) crap....
