Girl, you're gonna

break your neck.

Did you see it, Mom?

Did you?

Did you see my shrub?


But I can do it no-handed.

Want to see?

It's called an aerial.

I can still do it.

But I haven't taught you yet.

Doesn't matter! Watch!

Hey, hey, hey! Get in this house!

I know every single one of you

have homework to do, so let's go.

I can do an aerial.

Look at my shrub!

Why would you think the shrub

would be a landing pad?

Here we go. There.

"Today should always be

better than yesterday."

Why that one?

Because that, John,

That's the reason why it's at

You put it up there. Okay.

You broke it! Did not!

Tag! You're it!

That's unfair!

You're just a slowpoke! Slowpoke!

Hey, hey, hey, hey!

I'm on the phone. Take that outside.


Hey! Hey!

Come back here!

Yeah. Yeah, I can do Wednesday,

too, if I really push it. For sure.

Okay. Thank you.

You're it!


Nice work, Arie.

You're moving fast.


What did she break now? I swear,

that child is gonna drive me crazy.
