The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree

A few months ago, before I became single again, my children and I had a very interesting conversation. Here it is for your amusement.

First a little background information. My Daughter "V" is 8, very cute, and opinionated. She will tell you exactly how it is, whether she really has a clue or not.

My son "S" is 14 and built like a sherman tank, he's 6 foot 3, 250 pounds and plays a linebacker on the middle school football team, and he just had his first shave. He's also got way too much of his father in him for his own good. Actually they both do. It's scary !

Anyway , on to the story:

One morning, my daughter was complaining to her mother that she couldn't get on the softball team because sign ups were over and the team was filled. Mom attempted to console her by saying "we'll get you signed up next year" .

V wasn't having any of it. "but i want to play this year!" Mom said "sorry" and went to finish her morning rituals.

My son said to her "for $100 each , i'll break their arms and they can't play."

V is delighted by this and runs into the other room to talk to me. (she didn't realize i heard it all)

She says "daddy can i borrow twenty hundred dollars ?"

I decide to play along. "What do you need that money for ?"

V says "so i can play softball"

I say "that's a lot of money, how will you pay me back ?"

V looks at me like i'm the world's biggest idiot and proclaims "i get $5 a week allowance!"

I'm having a hard time keeping a straight face, so i call S into the other room.

i say "S, this is your sister, can't you cut her a price break ?"

to which he replies "sheesh dad..i did , i charge my friends at school $250"

just gotta love those kids...i have no choice, they're gonna be picking my nursing home !
