A big thanks to my neighbor who gave the boys a snack after school while I attended a meeting.

Upon picking them up, they grabbed their backpacks and headed to my car, parked in the neighbor’s drive, for the long and exhausting trip home…two houses down. Yet, they didn’t hop in.

Me: C’mon guys…get in.

Griffin: That’s okay, I’ll walk.

Me: Are you sure? You don’t have to.

Hayden: Yeah, I’ll walk, too.

Me: Okay, whatever you wanna do.

Griffin: I mean, we’re MEN, Mom. DUH.
