I was calling to see if she was getting stir crazy yet and asked if she wanted to go ride in the car with me while I went on the fundraising Dice Run. She declined. I told her the boys were really excited about it because the first place prize was $250 and Julius already had a plan on what he'd be purchasing with his winnings.
Mom: You're not going to let him spend all that money are you?
Me: Of course not. I told him he had to split it with his brother if he wins.
Mom: What about putting it into the bank?
Me: Yeah, but they get to spend some of it anyway one of them wins.
Mom: Well what does he want?
Me: A DS.
Mom: You're not getting him a DS. He's 7 years old.
Me: What do I care if he gets a DS if he's won $250 dollars? Every kid his age has one.
Mom: No they don't.
Me: Mom, they do too.
Mom: *I* don't even have one at my age.
Me: (laughing out loud) You totally don't even know what a DS is.
Mom: (without even pausing) I know, but I don't have one. What is it?
Me: It's a Nintendo handheld game thingy. Basically, a babysitter.
Mom: (grunts) Oh jeez. Kids these days.
Me: Yeah, tell me about it.
