Alexander has actually been pretty well behaved lately, despite the evidence here and in the previous post of a serious attitude developing!
So, my first question is this: do you think Alexander truly wanted the light off during dinner while Jack truly wanted it on, or were they just choosing opposing sides on something ridiculous to irk each other and their mother? In any case, I agreed with Jack that the light should be on, and this is the response I got from Xander, "Mommy, if you don't turn off the light then... YOU... ARE... FIRED!" (said with gusto!)
Honestly, I didn't realize that
a. he was the boss or
b. that I *could* be fired.
Where's my darn Union handbook? Oh, wait... if there was a Union I would definitely have sick days. Damn.
