Me: "Hatching, your behavior thus far today has been absolutely appalling. If you don't stop blowing apple bits all over my kitchen THIS INSTANT, you will be having a talk with your Daddy when he gets home from work today!" (Mean stare for extra effect...)
Hatchling: (Putting hand up to ear as if it is a telephone) "Hello, Daddy? WhawhawhawhaBadBoywhawhawha. Okay Daddy. Bye bye!" (big grin at mommy, as if to say, 'daddy's got my back')
I don't stand a chance, do I?
