Reasonable

After worship and Bible classes, the little kids of our congregation head up to the front to play. They like to jump off the platform and by staying up front they are less likely to bowl over any little old ladies in hairnets. Last night, all the kids were doing their best Superman impersonations and taking flying leaps off the steps when I decided it was time to get my children home. I stuck The Girl under my arm and told The Boy it was time to put his shoes back on.

"No, Mom! I'm not going yet. I need a reasonable amount of time to play!"

Naturally, I told him that the reasonable man standard did not apply to mothers and he was going to get the choice of putting his shoes on and hustling along with or without trouble, but I was laughing inside. Reasonable! Heh.
