My oldest child just walked into the den, where I was deeply engrossed in Wheel of Fortune and asked me, "Uh, Mom? Didn't you ground me yesterday for something?"

Me: Um. Yeah. I, um, I kinda forgot about that.

Him: Really?

Me: Yeah. Not my best parenting moment, huh?

Him: I don't mind it so much.

Me: Well, it kind of robs me of some of my parenting power, don't you think?

Him: It's okay. I'll pretend I'm terrified of you again tomorrow.

Me: Thanks, kid. You're all heart.

Him: What can I say? I'm a giver.
