"Happy" came on the radio and I turned it up for Boy 3 because he loves it.
"Mommy, no. This song is done."

Overheard from the living room where Boy 3 and Boy 7 are hanging out:
Boy 3: "Ugh, f***ing shit!"
Boy 7, gasping in horror: "Hey!! You can't say that, that is really, really bad!!!"
Boy 3: "WHY?!! Daddy say it, too!"

Girl 12 turned into Girl 13 today. She had asked me to make her favourite meal for her bday dinner: steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. Banana Cream Pie (store-bought, because, after all - this is me we're talking about) instead of cake. Then 10 minutes ago, she hit me with this gem:
"Mom, can you make Shepherd's Pie instead of steak? I don't feel like chewing that much."
I guess she's embracing the whole teenagers are lazy rule from Day 1.
