Me: Lucas, please pick up that napkin you threw on the ground.
Lucas: I can't mommy because my back really hurts!
Me: Okay, it's time to get out of the bath.
Lucas: But mommy, this is my boat. If I get out, the alligators in the water will get me.
Me: Time to clean up your Legos! Let's put them all back in the box.
Lucas: You need to help me. It's too much work for me to do by myself.
Me: Lucas, time to get ready for bed.
Lucas: It's not night time yet, it's not dark outside. I can't even see the moon.
