Ian is finishing up his homework at the kitchen table. Homework for the early weeks of kindergarten consists of coloring, cutting and pasting, and yet we have found a way to do some term-paper-level procrastination this weekend.
Me: I think I have some smaller scissors over here; would you like them?
Ian: No thanks, these are fine.
Me: Seriously, let me get you a different pair.
Ian: No. These are really okay.
Me: Because you seem to be struggling a little...
Ian, through gritted teeth: NO. THESE. ARE. FINE. THANK. YOU. MOMMY.
