Lyle's bedtime summary of the Condo Association Potluck tonight [hosted by us with one hour's notice due to rain and without Matt]:
Me: "Good night, Lyle. I'm sorry that dinner meeting was so hard for us tonight."
Lyle: "Yeah, me too. I said, 'Mommy! You. read. this. book. right. now!!!!' and you said, 'No, Lyle, I can't read it until after the meeting!' and I said, 'No!!!! Read! It! Now!!' and you said [grim voice], 'Just look at the pictures until we're all done here, please' and I shouted at you! I said, 'No!!!! Read it now!!!' and then I went in the sun room and jumped on Baxter and threw his book and hit him!"
Me: "Yes, honey, that's exactly how it happened."
