Zinabu, Mr. Popular, has had 3 birthday parties to attend in one week. I'm considering hiring him a personal assistant to keep up with all his comings and goings, not to mention making sure he doesn't wear the same thing twice to all these gatherings (sarcasm, people). I was driving to the store--again--to buy a birthday present--again--and I said offhand, "I'm glad you're not invited to 10 parties.
He piped up, "Why?"
"Well," I responded, "that would be a lot of presents to buy and that's a lot of money."
"Then get to work and make some money, Mom!" (insert sound of whip cracking)

This kid can be so sensitive at times, and so very annoying at others.

Sounds like he needs to do a little work around the house--learn what a little whip cracking looks like ;)

LOL, it sort of reminds me of something Geremu has recently been saying when I ask him to do something, "Say please Mom!" No whip cracking sounds, mostly just snotty voice. I think I need to nip this in the butt:)
