The fine print

The scene: Daddy is in the kitchen doing the dishes, Mommy and Grasshopper sit on the couch in the den, looking at a picture book [thankfully NOT Follow the Tow Truck] Mommy points to a photo of a newborn baby with black hair and serious eyes.

Mommy: Grasshopper, you used to be a little baby like this!

Grasshopper: No way!

Mommy: Yes! It wasn't very long ago that you were a little baby like this. But then you went and got big..

Grasshopper: Yeah! I big boy!

Mommy: That's right, you are a big boy. I don't know why you had to go and do that. I mean, I don't remember authorizing you to get big...

Daddy, from the kitchen: It's all in the fine print, My Love!

Mommy: Well, darn!

Grasshopper: It in da pwint Mommy.

I gave my older son a bath the other night (usually partner's job) and I swear that boy's feet are almost as big as mine. He's not even eight yet! Was that in the fine print too, 'cause if it was, I missed it.
