Partial Argument Between Me and "the Boy"
ME: (getting pretty irritated)...I mean it. You stop it right now!
BOY: (in my face)....I don't HAVE TO.
ME: (majorly gritting teeth)...for the last time, yes you do. Do NOT make me tell you again.
BOY: (snarkily if snarkily was a word)...Why nooooooot?
ME: (tired of explaining common sense and good manners)...Because I said so. That's why.
BOY: (risking life and limb)...Well, you aren't the boss of me.
ME: (totally sinking to the level of a 5-year-old)... I AM TOO the boss of you because I'm the mom and that's what moms are for. To be the boss of little boys, so you better mind.
and the prize goes to ....
BOY: (at the top of his lungs)... Well JESUS IS THE BOSS OF YOU!!!
