Picking up boys from school yesterday...

Park, hop out, meet Geo at the front of the school - it takes Ed's class a wee bit longer.
"hola Geo... (waves). Little dude... you should have your hat and gloves on. It's winter."
"It's ok... I'm just going from the school to the car..."
"I know... and it's cold."
"It's Ohhh Kayyyy"
"Off with you, the cars over there... I'm going to go meet Ed."
... dum di dum...
"Hey Edward... (tussles hair)."
"Hi dad..."
"Ed... It's winter. Where's you hat and gloves?"
"In my pack..."
"They should be on you... not in-your-bag."
"It's ohhhh Kayyy Dad!"
"No, Edward... you're just getting over a cold... you should dress properly for winter... That's why we send you to school with a hat and gloves... so you'll wear them and stay warm."
"No Dad... It's ohhhh Kayyyy!"
"Hmm... well off to the car with you..."

Arrive at home.

"Hold it... Kitchen table... everybody."
(suz stands by the table, both boys have seats... eager to ... do whatever, except sit at the table.)
"Alrighty... Here's the deal... Everyday that we get to the school to pick you up, in the winter, and you're not wearing your hat and gloves... is a day that does not include any computer time. Period, no debate, no second chances."
"but... but... but...."
"We're done here."

Picking up the boys at school today...
Oh look'it. Everybody's in gloves and hats.
