Another One of my Favorite Parenting Moments

Scene: It is November. DYLAN, DADDY and MOMMY are seated at the kitchen table, eating pizza. DYLAN places a half-eaten slice of pizza on the table and starts sliding it around.

DADDY: Stop that.

(DYLAN continues sliding the pizza)

DADDY: Dylan, no.

(Without breaking DYLAN’s grip, DADDY takes the pizza and puts it on the plate. DYLAN puts the pizza back on the table and resumes sliding it)

DADDY: Stop that.

(DYLAN continues sliding the pizza)

DADDY: Son, are you pushing your boundaries?

(DYLAN looks at DADDY with mild condescension)

DYLAN: No, daddy. Pushin’ pizza.
