Picking Jessica up from school:
Jessica: Why are you wearing sunglasses?
Me: Eye doctor today. He put drops in. You know, to dilate my pupils. So now the sun hurts my eyes.
Jessica: Did you sit still for the eye drops?
Me: Yes, I did.
Jessica: Did you cry? Or whine?
Me: No, I sucked it up.
Jessica: Good job, Mom!
Me: You know, your standards are kind of low.
Jessica: Yes, I know.
