I've probably told this before, but if so, hopefully you've all forgotten.
When my youngest was about 4, I was having a bad moment. Don't remember why, but I was "getting my undies in a bundle," as my husband likes to say. I told her, "If you don't stop it, your mom is gonna crack!" She stopped whatever she was doing, looked me levelly in the eye, pointed at me, and said in a serious voice, "Crack now." I don't know what she was expecting, but I surely did crack up!
I think she's probably really tired of this story, but it's one of my favorites.
