Is there anything more annoying than asking your parents what they want for Christmas and hearing them say, “For you and your brothers to get along”?
Yes, there is. Asking them what they want for Christmas and hearing them say, “Nothing.”
Even more annoying? Asking your kid what he wants for Christmas and not being to hear anything over the ensuing filibuster. Seriously, I just walked out of the room and I can still hear my three-year-old rattling off items from his list.
Kids want everything, adults want nothing. Thankfully, when you have children of your own, it kind of balances out.
