Turn the Music Up

On our way home from picking up Zeke the other day from school, Olivia was sleeping and I was listening to the radio.  I decided to turn the music down and talk to Zeke.  After all, we have been taught to use these moments to talk to our children, get to know them better and build our relationships with them.  Here's how it went...

Me:  How was your day Zeke?
Zeke:  Good.
Me:  Did you have fun?
Zeke:  Yes.
Me:  What did you learn?
Zeke:  I can't remember.  (Pause.)  Can you please turn the music up?  I can't hear it.

So much for bonding!  At least I tried :)
