On a Scale of One to Fifteen

In the car yesterday, from the backseat, Max asked me, "Mom, on a scale of one to fifteen, one being something that's terrible to do and fifteen being something that's the most fun in the world to do, where would you rated being a parent?"

Long silence.

And I replied that I loved being a parent and thought it was the most important thing I've done in my life, that at times it's a blast and that other times it is really hard, that being a parent means sometimes you have to make hard decisions.

So today when his cough got worse and I had to call and cancel his play date, I reminded him of my answer.

He was still mad.
