Me: Good kid.
Lauca (my 8 yr old): Why?
Me: Because you’re filling your guineapigs’ food and water bowls before we go out.
Lauca: That’s not praiseworthy, that’s just my responsibility as the owner of pets. It’s the same as you giving us breakfast before we go out, it’s just responsibility.
Me: Oh. But I didn’t give you any breakfast this morning.
Lauca: I know.
