Kylie and I were sitting at the kitchen table this afternoon putting the finishing touches on the Valentines Keilana made her class, which involved putting Hershey's Kisses "ear buds" on the conversation heart box "iPods" that she had made, and Kylie has gathered all the leftover Kisses into a pile.  She looked at the gleaming silver treasure and said, "Can I have all of these?"

I didn't look up from my glue gun, but just replied, rather flatly, "No."

She looked at me with a knit brow and tense jaw and said, "I mean all of it besides your mommy tax."

We try to teach them the facts of life young.

hilarious our house has more of a daddy tax when it comes to treats than a mommy tax.
