Me: Dude. I'm so sorry I called you a butt-head yesterday.
Son: (Stern look) Mommy. You shouldn't talk about butts.
Me: I know man. I know. I just lost it when you threw your crayons all over the minivan.
Son: (Stern look continued)
Me: Would it make you feel better if we got some cupcakes?
Son: (Thinking) We could try it and see.
