A nightly tradition.

If you lived in our house, you would hear this, somewhere between the hours of 7 p.m. and 8 p.m, every single night:

Me/Cory: Ni-night, Calvin. I love you.
Calvin: Don't make any loud noises or quiet noises and don't watch the news and don't brush your teeth and go straight to bed.
Me/Cory: (While walking downstairs) Goodnight. See you in the morning.
Calvin: Don't watch the news! Don't brush your teeth! Go straight to bed!
Me/Cory: I love you. Goodnight.
Calvin: And tell Daddy (or Mommy) not to watch the news!
Me/Cory: Goodnight Calvin!
Calvin: Ni-night.

For months and months he went the route of, "Be sure to watch the news and brush your teeth", but several weeks ago he spontaneously decided to mix it up a bit.

What can I say? The kid is quirky.
