This is a whispered conversation that just took place between Sam and James after they got in trouble for not doing one of their (few and very easy) jobs.
Samuel: It like Mom's the boss of us. She's telling us what to do.
Samuel: It's not fair! I wish we could do whatever we wanted.
James: That would be awesome!
Apparently, I am parenting like I am supposed to... or at least a close proximity. I must have had the exact conversation with my brothers countless times.
