No, I'm not going let you.
No, honey. I want you to rest. It's been a long day and you are exhausted. I'm exhausted. We need to relax.
I don't want to relax. I want to play!
Sorry, dude. Mom's rule. Rest then you can play.
I hate you...
Really? OK, I know you don't mean....
Suddenly, I see an accident on other side of freeway. The truck that looks just like ours is crushed. Totaled. Upside down and completely destroyed. A big rig is next to it. While watching the wreckage, I swerve into the left side lane, barely missing a motorcycle.
I regain my composure. My baby girl hasn't woken up. I look at my son.
Honey, you can do what you want but I say for how long. Understood?
I am now. Life's too short. I'm OK now.
Are some battles not worth it?
