Here is how the conversation went the other day when I was helping to fix his favorite lunch for when he is a little under the weather, Top Ramen.

“Aren’t I the most awesomest mom??”

Total silence, while I’m just looking at him, waiting patiently for the answer.

Then Evan asks, “What was the question??”

“Aren’t I the most awesomest mom??”

Silence again.

“I suppose it’s possible!”

Five minutes later while he is eating his lunch, out of the blue he says,

“That wasn’t quite the answer you were looking for, was it?”

To which, I told him “not really”, then I went on about how much I help him and told him “I quit”, Dad can help you with everything from now on.”

Half an hour later we are playing a game, and out of the blue...

“You were just kidding about quitting, weren’t you??”

I laughed through the whole thing.

He knows you would NEVER quit. After all, you were playing a game with him just a few minutes later. Hardly quitting. He's lucky to have such a fabulous mom.
