My favorite thing Casey has ever said. Ever.

Yeah, “I love you” was fantastic, but this was better.

We were at the hotel a couple of days ago. I was tired and a little unnerved from the lack of sleep and stress over not having power, my overheated daughter, and my aching hips (yeah, my hips ACHE all of the time. I don’t know what my deal is. If you say “It’s because of your massive soda intake” I will find you. I will cut you). Casey’s ADHD meds hadn’t kicked in yet and he wasn’t listening to a thing I said. After the fifth time telling him to put on his shoes, I yelled, “CASEY! Put on your damn shoes!”

Without looking up he says in his deep, raspy voice,

“Don’t nag me, Mom, it’s been a loooooong day”
