Overheard in our home for the first time this week:
(Mothering milestones if you will.)
"There are children all over the world who are hungry but their parents don't have any food to give them. Now you'd better be thankful for that sandwich and eat it!"
(After my son, who has been experimenting/testing me with his language, called his sister "Annapoop.")
"Jackson Jones! Do you want your mouth washed out with soap?!?!"
(During our visit to HEB in which Jackson chose one cereal and then changed his mind when it was too late.)
"Jackson, I don't want to hear another word about that cereal. All I hear is whining and it's making my ears hurt."
"Mommy, your ears are bleeding?"
"Yes! Mommy's ears are bleeding."
(After I took away Jackson's race car due to the whining and then handed it back due to improved behavior.)
"Mommy, your ears stopped bleeding?"
