Liberties have been taken with the verbage, but this is literally what happens in our home, all from the mouth of Sprite:
"Mommy, I want to watch my DVD's."
"My Tag pen needs new batteries."
"Can I play a game on Daddy's phone?"
"Don't help me, I'll do this on my own."
"Where's the movie in this car?"
"I want my stroller, the walk's too far!"
"Check out my new electronic book,"
"It does it all, I only look!"
"And I want to learn to play the Wii,"
"It would be so much fun for me."
"I'm way too bored, I can't fall asleep."
"The iPod's company I should keep."
"It will get me to sleep again."
"Just don't check on me until after ten."
"Yes, I know how to work your cell."
"Perhaps I should play with that as well."
"And your Nook is nice, do you mind?"
"Putting some of my books on there would be kind."
"Other kids have tv's in their room,"
"Therefore me too, I should assume."
"I need some toys, there's room for more,"
"Can you take me to the Disney Store?"
"What do you mean I have enough to play?"
"I don't want to wait for my birthday!"
"No entertainment in the car, what should I do?"
"What do you mean, TALK TO YOU?"
"You want to hear about my day?"
"It was fine. That's all I'll say."
"No tv for the rest of the night?"
"Play outside? Why the spite?"
"But this is all stuff I normally do."
"And besides, I got it all from you."
Next time we complain about our kids having too much access to the electronic stuff, maybe we should realize just whose hands are giving it over..
(Oooh, see how I turned it on you? You hate me just a little, don't you?)

Next Week's Spin Cycle Assignment: (insert here)
Omigod, exactly what you've been wanting to write! I'm psychoic, I know.
That's right, it's OPEN SPIN! Anything you want to write about, it's the topic! (This basically gives you the right to link basically anything up. Write on a Tuesday and want to put your typing toes up for the rest of the week? Just slap a Spin Cycle on it and consider your work done!
Yes, we're taking it easy on you this time, especially since someone (not saying who) may have been at a late Open House for VPK which preceded a very abbreviated bedtime routine and a fight to read Chapter Nine of Pollyanna. Guess who won? And guess who's writing this at 11 since the other normal after work chores don't care that someone was busy with life? Stupid dishes.
I will obviously thank myself tomorrow when I can pull a clean coffee pot out of the dishwasher for that blessed cup of heaven.
All right, folks, enough of my caterwalling, link on up! You can link all your posts up if you want to! Sky's the limit! No rules, just write!
See you next week on the Spin Cycle!
