On taxes and fighting

Ryland, Reggie and I went to Zellers. Ryland needed to buy a present for his friend Blake. Reggie still couldn’t find winter shoes that he liked. He bought 2 sweaters instead. I told the cashier that the sweaters were for my 15-year old son so that I won’t have to pay taxes. She said that the no-tax is only for 14 and under. “Actually, he’s still 14, his birthday is next week,” I said. I didn’t know about that no-tax thing. She said that it depends on the store. Some stores impose the no-tax for 12 and under.

At night…
Mom: Ryland, don’t fight with Kuya Ryan, okay, also not with Kuya Reggie. Fighting is not good.
Ryland: But you fight with Daddy. This house is a fighting machine.
Although he said that in jest, I was taken aback. So my kids are aware of it. We should really stop fighting, especially in front of them.
