B: Responsible . . . for a price

The other day I was remarking to my mom about how responsible B had been in the past few days -- taking the initiative on things that needed to be done around the house, making sacrifices, watching out for his sisters.

"B has been getting more and more responsible ever since he turned nine," I said, placing a hand on his shoulder.

Just then B piped up: "Yeah, but it's probably just because I want something."

I swear we've never said the same -- so he came up with that one entirely on his own.
