I'm not making this up

"Mama?" says E during a quiet moment, "Did you know some kids try to not do what their parents say?"

--"Yeah?" I reply.

"Yeah. But I don't think that's good. I think it's better to listen to parents."

--"Really? How come?"

"Because parents are smarter than kids. Well, not smarter, but parents know more."

I will keep journalistic distance and let this conversation speak for itself, as the gods of Mt. Parenthood frown upon hubris and will toss a thunderbolt at me if I gloat.
