Me: (tiredly gathering up pandemic homeschool supplies)
Beta: (laying on floor in sunbeam with doggo) Mom? Which do you love more, the kids or the dog.
Me: (sighs) Well, the dog doesn’t argue with me about every. single. thing. I. say. so maybe I love the dog best.
Beta: Except when he’s pulling on the leash or not sitting when you tell him or chewing on things he’s not supposed to…
Me: Hey Beta? You’re kinda proving my point.
