Watch Your Mouth

This morning I'm getting The Boy ready for school

Me: Okay, we got to go. Put on your jacket please.

The Boy: I don't want a jacket.

Me: You have to wear your jacket.

TB: I'm not cold. I don't want to wear it.

Me: It's cold outside. You have to wear it. You can take it off when you get to school.

TB: I'll take it off in the car.

Me: It's cold in the car too. You can take it off when we get to school. You have to believe me. I'm not just being a dick.

TB: You ARE being a dick!

I couldn't really get mad at him. After all, I said it first. Damn!
