The scene: In the kitchen making breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning.
Carter: Mommy, we do the same thing every day, and I don't want to do the same thing every day. I don't want to go to school today.
Me: Okay, you can stay home today. You don't have to go to school.
Carter: I'll stay home by myself?
Me: No. Mommy and Daddy will be here today. We'll have fun today!
Carter: Yay!!! No school today!!
(Nobody tell him it was Sunday.)
