Dinner Table Conversation With Kids

Those of you who have been following this blog for awhile know we are very good friends with our neighbors across the street.  We hang out with them ALL THE TIME (and even vacation with them).  Last night my neighbor e-mails me this:

Tonight at dinner, Dad smacks (not hard - don't worry no animals were hurt) one of the pups down because they were jumping up and yapping at us. One of them whines a bit at being smacked and the kids laugh and the following conversation ensued.

Mom: "Its not funny." 
Dad (to the kids): "No one does that to the pups but me."
Kids: "Why?"
Dad: "Because I am the Master."
A pause ...
7 year old Son: "And Mommy is the Master of you - the master of all?"
3 year old Daughter: "Yeah!" 
Dad: "Is Chatty telling you that stuff?"

Mr. ESPN and I were dying of laughter!
