"Uh-huh." Yes, I know it sounds benign, as they say it all the time in completely non-offending ways. But there's that certain tone, that certain slowness to the utterance, that certain something that always, 100% means they're nicely telling me, "Yes, mom...you're so stupid."
But really, I should be celebrating this. My boys are being kind to me. They're taking great care to not actually call me "stupid". I think they deserve to have a new value put on that "uh-huh" of theirs. "Uh-huh" now officially means "Mom, I love you so much!!!"
And now they'll wonder why I respond with a big toothy grin and a celebratory clutch of my heart.
