Fly on the Wall

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?"

It sounds like it's been one of those weeks! Out of the mouths of babes...

Prayers to you for a smoother week to come!

Jenny said...

You have to admit, "Annapoop" is kinda funny. :)

Stephani said...

Hilarious! Yet, probably not so hilarious in the moment.

Molly said...

I love the honesty! And I love how great of a mom you are...good for you!

I always smile when I read about your family!

Ears are bleeding--now that has some deep thought.

I think this may happen when Beth finds out "24" has been cancelled! :-)

Amanda, you are loving mom.

I agree with Jen--Annapoop is funny. Though I am with you on your reaction! :)

Heather said...

Jackson is all boy!! The things our kids say, and he's quite the clever one, ears bleeding!!

my favorite when ever I did something wrong and then said that I didn't mean to do it - my mom would always say "well you didn't mean NOT to" It took me YEARS to understand that. And now I hear myself say it to my family.

Brittny said...

That's funny!!! I actually said, "If you don't stop throwing goldfish I'm going to pull this car over and give you a spanking!" She froze, I think she knew what I meant even though I'd never said it before. To her at least.
