I'm sure the parents of all the small kids in town and all the homeowners will be happy to hire you to babysit, mow their lawns, and weed their gardens, dear.

Mother dear, may I please elope with my fiance? I'd rather not have a big family-reunion style wedding, and I don't even know all these third cousins, co-workers, and local bigwigs on the guest list.  I don't even need gifts.

Of course you can fill the pool with Jello, but purple doesn't go with our color scheme-you'll have to make it lime instead.

Mom, can I turn our dog loose on the neighbors who never turn down their music below Nightclub volume?

Why certainly, my little duckling, but I expect you to bury the evidence yourself afterward. (It's such a good thing I'm not really a mom, I'd  raise them all evil LOL)

Mooooooom.... I wanna beautiful new 150 gallon salt water reef aquarium!

Of course honey!   Spend all day in bed, that is why we bought you the Disney Princess Slide Bed with diamond and ruby accents.  It  cost us $5000, so use it!

Mommy, can I raid your liqueur cabinet for my friend's party?  He's turning 12 after all.

Of course hunnie.  Just make sure that you don't post anymore- moderators are only supposed to moderate, not post their own opinion.

Mamma, do I have to go to work today?
