The Boy Knows His Mother

After completing their morning work, the boys wanted to play outside. Often the three oldest go out on their own and I stay in the house with the two babies. Today, Zachary wanted to play in the snow with the bigger boys. Fearing that I might be lonely or bored without him, Zachary sought to appease me.

"You can be in here with Nicholas, " he said in a tone I've often used with him when I expect resistance. Then he offered the bribe,

"You could have some coffee."
