Recent conversation with Second Born Son at Swiss Chalet, enjoying a celebratory dinner for passing swimming lesson.....
Second Born Son: Thanks for dinner Mommy!
Momma Bear: You're welcome Bud. I'm very proud of how hard you worked. You know, it makes me think, I wonder what would happen if you worked that hard at school?
SBS: I'd probably get better marks.
MB: Uh huh.
SBS: ...and then get into better schools....
MB: That's right!
SBS: ...and then I'd be able to get a job at the til!
MB: (stupified - chewing on her chicken)
