Between Me and The Kole Miner

Mom (me):  Kole, Who ARE you these days? 
Kole:  The three words that best describe me are:  Screaming, Hitting, Intellectual.
Mom:  Yeah.  I've noticed.  Let's talk about the screaming and the hitting.
Kole:  What's there to talk about, shoog?  I'm happy.  And when I'm not youze has gots to know.
Mom:  Quit leaning on the wall that way.  And put that cigarette out!  Man!  Where did you get that leather jacket?
Kole:  I stole it.
Mom:  (sighs)  Look.  For the last 6 weeks or so when you would scream I would ignore you because I thought that's what I was supposed to do...
Kole:  Only gonna make me scream louder.  A brother needs heard.
Mom:  I tried telling you "no" nicely but...
Kole:  Oh, yeah!  Real effective, Mom!  "No no no little honey.  No no no."  Oooooo!  I'm scared!  Don't say "no" one more time or I might pee my pants.  Ooooooo! 
Mom:  Well I'm just telling you that all hells about to break loose up in 'ere.  And if Ize gots to get up in your grill.... I will.
Kole:  Don't try talking ghetto.  You're too old.
Mom:  Well.... Just take this as a warning.  These are about to change.
Kole:  We'll see.
Mom:  Yeah!  We WILL see!
Kole: Psht!  Whatev.
Mom:  Don't you talk back to me like that!
Kole:  Or what?  Huh?  What?  I'm not afraid of you!
Mom and Kole:  Rolls eyes

Hee hee - quite a vocabulary for such a little boy.

Stop imagining the worst, he doesn't seem like he could ever be that way and I bet he won't. :)

Oh, Sigh! Tinian is the SAME!!! He knows how to tell me he's mad better than his older brothers. He literally THROWS himself on the floor and screams and kicks and yells. Oh, it is a horrid sight!! WHY DO THEY HAVE TO GROW UP?? Why can't they stay little forever?!!!

Dude, they start talking like 20's gangsters and leaning against walls in their leather jackets wayyy too quickly. :) Hahaha! Gage is in the screaming phase now. It makes me want to punch his little cheeks, but you know, they're just such cute little cheeks, so I refrain.
