Like most parents, the Husband and I have at times questioned our abilities as parents.

If you say something during a session with your therapist that causes him to say something like, "Wow, I never thought of it that way before," and if he then spends a moment contemplating your statement and shares how it relates to his own personal situation, should you expect:
a) your money back from your session, or
b) your money back and a fee for your own therapeutic insight
One of us should be paid for being a professional here.

Younger Son was instructed to mow the lawn while The Husband and I were grocery shopping. When we returned home, the mower was on the lawn, but the grass was still growing tall.

The radio station I left two years ago occasionally calls to ask if I can record commercials for them. When I worked there, I was the only female announcer to do commercials, and they haven't hired any new female announcers since.
It doesn't happen often because it's a little awkward
being having me there.
They start out offering me money to do it, then tell me who the client is.
Last week, I got another one of these calls.
"...wondering if you'd be willing to come in to record an ad. We'd pay you. It's for a political candidate."
When I worked at the station, it didn't matter what the subject matter was, I was required to record it as part of my job duties. No questions.
But, they don't pay my salary anymore...
"Who's the candidate?" I want to know.
Omg, you guys.
It was this guy.
I said no.
In fact, my exact words were, "Oh hell, no."
There's not enough money, folks. Wow.

Younger Son informed me I was whistling a pop song wrong, and he proceeded to whistle it the "correct" way.
"Well, what song is it so I can listen to it and do it the right way?" I asked.
Watching TV one night, a trailer for a movie called The Boxtrolls came on, and there was THE TUNE in the background!
I listened for any lyrics, but the only word I could pick out was, "Oh!"
Not very helpful.
Numerous Google inquiries followed:
"What's the song in the Boxtrolls movie trailer?"
"What's the whistling song in the Boxtrolls TV trailer?"
Nothing but wrong answers. No search brought me to the tune stuck (wrong) in my head.
Then... two free weeks of satellite radio later...
I heard it. And got the name of it off the digital readout.
So friends, I present to you the correct answer to your question, and my new favorite song:

Over breakfast, I apologized to Younger Son, now a high school senior, for having never taken pictures of him or his brother on their first days of school.
