Oh, right, good point. Our own 16 y.o. announced the other day that I 
was fired. (Forgot to give her an important letter for two days.) After 
I stood there grinning for a while she finally clarified, "I mean fired 
from Mom Privileges, not from Mom Duties!" No, we don't want to give 
them the idea they can trade us in for more satisfactory models, do we?
