Mommy Time

As I was trying to get C into his room for quiet time this afternoon he called out from his room: "But I need mommy time!" EXCUSE ME? This was a statement worth pursuing.

Mommy: "You need WHAT?"

C: "Mommy time."

Mommy: "What do you mean by that?"

C: "You know. Mommy time."

Mommy: "Why don't you explain it to me, just to be sure I understand."

C: (big sigh) "I've had a lot of playdates and soccer and school and stuff and I just need some mommy time."

Mommy: "Well, that's what you're getting. Time alone in your room to play what you want how you want it."

C: (big eye roll) "No silly. Mommy time means I get to hang out with you!"

Apparently Mommy and C have VERY different ideas concerning the definition of "mommy time."
