My good lady wife is the epitome of the modern mother...for the most part. Sure, she's always on the cutting edge of the latest technology, or parenting philosophy, or educational reform movement, and she's totally the Cool Mom when it comes to, say, video games. But she's still definitely got more than a little of that 70s mom thing going on.
Case in point: The Boy comes back in after nearly five minutes out in the front yard.
ME: What's up? Is everything okay?
THE BOY: The Brawn is yelling.
ME: He's yelling?
THE BOY: Yeah.
ME: Is he okay?
THE BOY: Yeah. He's just yelling. It's just really annoying.
ME: Well, I think that's called "being 7 years old."
THE BOY: It's really annoying.
TOP MANAGEMENT: Well, he's not annoying me. Go back outside and play.
Admittedly, this photo doesn't really apply but how could I not use it once I'd seen it?
