Me: Miles, I hope you're going to pick up all these orange peels you are putting on the counter, and not make me do it.
Miles: Mom, sometimes you have to do things you just don't want to do.
Miles: You know that you have to do hard things in life, right, Mom?
Strider: The word "Chill-pill" is not good because it encourages kids to take drugs. People shouldn't say, "Take a chill-pill" because they're telling people to take drugs.
Me: Well.... I'm glad to hear you're taking a stand against drugs.
Strider: Yep. The war against drugs just got stronger.
Me: Well that's good....
Strider: ... as Nancy Reagan would say.
Me; I'm proud on so many levels.
Miles hit Colsen and then Colsen hit him back.
Miles, wailing on the floor clearly thought all of the blame should be put on Colsen: "COLSEN! Why do you always have to repay evil for evil???!!!"
Me: Miles, I KEEP telling you not to do that! Now take your math book into your room and work on it!!
Miles: Mom, maybe you need to be a little less feisty.
Miles: You're being pretty feisty right now, you know, Mom.
Colsen: ... Well, then, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Me: If I ain't seen nothing, then that means I HAVE seen something.
Colsen: Oh, Mom, you're from New York. You don't know how to speak Southern!
