A few days ago Emma was giving me lip after I told her to do something (I really can't remember what it was), and asked why she needed to do whatever I asked her to at that time.
Me: Why? 'Cuz I'm the boss, that's why.
Anna, with her arms crossed and a smug look on her face: You know... you can be the boss without being bossy.
Me, walking away so she can't see me trying not to laugh, all the while enjoying that fact that she stuck up for lil' sis: Wow, that was deep. How very philosophical of you, thanks for sharing.
