You talkin' to me?

You talkin' to me?
"Coffee with cream, please."
"Mommy, can I have a muffin? Can I have the chocolate croissant? Can I have the thing I had yesterday? Mommy, do they have any eggs? Why is the egg brown? Does it taste like the eggs at home? Do their chickens look the same? Mommy, do they have sausages? How do they make sausage? Mommy, look. Mommy, do you like sausage? Then why are you a vegetarian? Mommy, how long are you going to be a vegetarian? Aren't eggs meat? Then why are you eating an egg? Mommy, look. Mommy, what about cereal? Do you like cereal? Mommy, can I get some fruit? Mommy, look at this pink fruit. A grapefruit? These are good, why don't you buy these at home? Mommy, can I have some of your granola? Do you have to eat granola because you're a vegetarian? Mommy, what are we going to do today? Mommy, where should we go? Mommy, do we have to look at more art? Mommy, why do so many people paint pictures of Jesus? Why don't people paint pictures of God? Mommy, what do you think God looks like? Mommy, look at these words. What language is this in? Mommy, why does Dutch have so many letters? Do you think I should take Spanish or French? Do they teach Dutch in our school? Mommy, what do you think is harder, Dutch or Korean? Mommy, when are we going to Korea? Do they have eggs in Korea? Or will we have rice for breakfast? Mommy, look. Mommy, what should we have for lunch? Mommy, why are you holding your head like that?"
"Yes, I'll take a second cup of coffee, with a shot of kahlua, please."

You know they don't bother their dad, they see he's busy reading the paper or something. :-)
