“Jordan, why are you out of the bed? I just tucked you in.”

“I need some underwear.”

“You didn’t put on underwear after you got out of the tub? You have on shorts, so just go to bed and in the morning you can put on some undies.”

“As soon as I wake up, then you can give me some underwear to put on?”

“Yes, Jordan. Bed. Now.”

“Okay, Mommy. But don’t forget that I will need underwear in the morning before I put my jeans on or else my butt will get too cold. Right, Mommy?”

“Absolutely right because nobody wants a frosty bum. Now go to bed. Pronto.”

“Mommy, what does pronto mean? ”

“It means that you’d better hurry up and go get your butt in the bed like I told you to. No more questions.”

“Okay, Mommy. Mommy? Just one more thing. ”

“OH FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, Jordan, WHAT!?!”

“I love you one hundred and I’m keeping you FOREVER!”
