Schooled by a third grader.

I told Chase to go read for 20 minutes the other night. He started arguing with me about where to read. He couldn’t find a quiet, well lit space in this “whole place.”

I said,” Chase, chose your battles.” When he didn’t respond I explained, “You know, the expression ‘win the battle lose the war?'”

He had stopped in the doorway, with his arms crossed, all weight on one foot and sighed,  “that’s an idiom actually. That’s not an expression. People call that an idiom.”

(I’m scared. What’s happening right now?)

He left the room and I frantically googled idoms. That was embarrassing.
