Iris tells it like it is

Me: "Brush your teeth, children!"

Iris, to me, her mother: "You, brush your humanity! Brush your dignity!"

good lord. your daughter frightens me.

My daughter calls me an idiot at age 13. I shudder to imagine what will fly out of Iris's mouth. ;)

p.s. this is one of the advantages of being a semi-conservative. My children don't believe they have rights and are totally convinced they live 20 days a month in a dictatorship called momland and 10 days a month in an amusement park named dadland.
