Some of our conversation today:
Me: (reading from 'Story of the World 1' by Susan Wise Bauer) "Shamshi-Adad wanted the people of Mesopotamia to be afraid of him. He was a dictator-he didn't allow any of the people in his new kingdom to ask questions about his laws and his commands. He just wanted them to obey him immediately."
Adam: (interrupting) That's just like YOU, Mom!
(I HAVE been talking to him the past few days about taking his own sweet time getting around to doing what I say!)
Me: (When I could read again without laughing. It took a couple of minutes.) "How did he get them to obey? He killed anyone who wouldn't do exactly what he said!" So do I do that as well?
Adam: Well, maybe you used to have more children than you do now? I think maybe you actually had 10 to start with........!
