Yesterday, while we were on our way to pick up Madison from school, Nathan and Lauren had a cute little altercation.
The kids who walk home are dismissed before the bus/car riders and always go running down the street past the line of parents who are waiting to pick up their children.
Nate, 'Those kids are funny, Mom.'
Lauren, 'No, they're not.' (always the little antagonist)
Nate, (said very angrily) 'Take me a break, Lauren.'
After laughing for a good couple of minutes, I explained the expression is supposed to be 'Give me a break.'
