Scene One: Riding in the Van to School

Beautiful fall day, windows down, music playing at an audible-with-windows-down level and faded front (so it’s quieter through the back speakers).

Little Boy (from car seat in the way-back): TURN IT DOWN!!!! IT’S TOO LOUD!!!

Me: Ignore him since he’s being disrespectful and demanding, sing along.

Little Boy (from car seat in the way-back): TURN IT DOWN!!!! IT’S TOO LOUD!!!

Me: Continue to ignore him and continue to sing along.

Shampoo, rinse, repeat all the way to school.


Scene Two: Riding in the Van Home

Same beautiful fall day, windows down, music playing very softly and faded front (so it’s quieter through the back speakers).

Little Boy (from car seat in the way-back): TURN the music UP. I. Can’t. HEAR!!!

Me: (ignore him since he’s being disrespectful and demanding)

Little Boy (from car seat in the way-back): TURN the music UP. I. Can’t. HEAR!!!

The end.
